Apologies to any Reagan enthusiasts, but then again, I didn't write the song. Killer Mike's new single, "Reagan," is being released as a 7."

KILLER MIKE DEBUTS "REAGAN" VIDEO VIA PITCHFORK
PRE-ORDER REAGAN 7" HERE
ON TOUR NOW WITH GZA AND SWEET VALLEY
Watch - "Reagan": http://pitchfork.com/tv/youtube/13-music-videos/463-killer-mike-reagan-official-music-video/
Nearly a decade deep in the rap game, Mike has released five critically hailed records and won a Grammy for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group with Outkast for the song "The Whole World." But, in no uncertain terms, Mike will tell you that R.A.P. Music is his finest accomplishment. He'll even call it a "classic." Of course, every rapper calls every one of their albums a classic. The only difference is that Mike's right.
The Reagan 7" is the quintessential companion piece to Killer Mike's critically acclaimed LP R.A.P. Music produced by El-P. Dropping on Election Day (11/06), the release is limited to just 1500 copies on white vinyl. "Reagan" video director Daniel Garcia also contributed to the album artwork. Watch the Animated video for "Reagan" at Pitchfork.tv.
Killer Mike is currently on tour with GZA and Sweet Valley. Scroll down to view all of the tour dates.
