A look at the tracklist before playing “Sheeple”& you can already get an idea of what emcee Myke Murder is going to speak about for the next a fifty minutes or so. Speak he does – for all but one feature from MNSTR the album is solely Mr. Murder from the opening track $laves to the albums finale G.O.D. (Gold, Oil, Drugs). Myke Murder has often elaborated on the topics America loves to ignore & this time around he delves in through an album that sounds more polished than his past releases.

Nearly a week of listening to Sheeple – & still it is in heavy rotation. A feat that well listening through hundreds of songs a week sometimes is hard to come by for a hip hop blogger.
If you haven't heard of Murdercorp or Myke Murder Sheeple provides a perfect starting point! Sure to offend some in what becomes a backdrop for controversial discussion & open the eyes of some of those very “Sheeple” at the same time listen below & maybe you will start wondering ….what exactly is going on in this wild, wild world..
