Killer Mike recently reflected on his experience with JAY-Z during an appearance on The Breakfast Club.

In doing so, he weighed in on the hypothetical question as to whether he’d take $500,000 or a dinner with the legendary rapper. From there, Mike explained that he sent a rough draft of his new album to Jay, who sent him back praise in response.

Killer Mike dropped Michael as his sixth studio album on Friday. The project marks his first solo effort in over a decade. It features collaborations with a star-studded list of artists including CeeLo Green, Young Thug, 6lack, André 3000, Future, Currensy, 2 Chainz, and several more. Mike previously revealed that he spent upwards of $500,000 of his own money to finance the passion project.
