Big Boi, Killer Mike & Jeezy Are 2017 Atliens On “Kill Jill” (Video)
Big Boi’s Boomiverse arrives later this month, and with it come some formidable collabs. On “Kill Jill,” the second single from the Outkast MC’s first solo LP since 2012’s Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors, Killer Mike and Jeezy join forces with Daddy Fat Sax for a Quentin Tarantino-inspired record starring three villainous rappers. Featuring a boastful verse from Mike (“I’m the man, boo/That’s with or without you”), a confident hook from the Snowman (“Hey, don’t you see me out here shinin’? Bi*ch, I’m barely flexin'”), and a superhero-themed return from Big Boi (“No ‘S’ is on my chest but all these diamonds got me blessed”), it’s a triple-threat from Rap assassins.
Today (June 2), the video for “Kill Jill” dropped, and it plays on many of the same themes as Kill Bill. There are masked and costumed assailants, covert operations, and plenty of sex appeal. From traditional Japanese geishas to women provocatively dancing with the American flag, the video is fully loaded with multicultural visual cues and what it lacks in a linear plot, it more than makes up for in variety and striking set design. For his part, Big Boi makes it abundantly clear: he’s back to claim the throne, as he dons a king’s wardrobe and sits atop an elaborately decorated seat, where he’s joined by a magnificent lion.
Boomiverse arrives June 16.
