When a well-known mixtape DJ compiles a full-length album, strong lyrical firepower tends to accompany it, and when that DJ is Kay Slay, you can expect nothing less than the best. On 6 Million Ways to Die, an inclusion on his forthcoming studio album, three highly energized emcees bring the heat over a sample from the Snoop Dogg classic, Serial Killa; Bun B emphasizes how he’s ready for anything, while Papoose reminds us of Sean Bell, the recent southern hurricanes, and the possibility of Barack Obama being assassinated. On the song’s final verse, however, Chamillionaire (maintaining his curse-free style) entertainingly makes it clear that he doesn’t like the police any more now than he did when he was Ridin’ Dirty. Though More Than Just a DJ currently has no set release date, underground mixtape buzz could give it a sturdy calendar spot.
