Label: Grind Time/Grand Hustle/Tree Leaf/SMC

by Mosi Reeves

Continuing his Pledge Allegiance to the Grind series, the former OutKast associate tones down the crack talk in favor of diatribes against Sarah Palin and Nancy Pelosi ("That's Life II") and the Christian church. "I need the pimps, pushers and prostitutes out in the streets / That's where I'm seeking God 'cause that's where he found me," he argues eloquently on "God in the Building II." ATL kingpins Young Jeezy, Gucci Mane, and T.I. pay their respects, and Mike mimics their strip-club homilies, but he shines brightest as the trap's "book reader" and "gang leader."
