Video: Mikkey Halsted & Rhymefest Live at the Wild Hare

Mikk runs through “Runnin’ My City” (the full version features Killer Mike, Bun B, Gillie Da Kid and others), “Rebel to America”, and also brings out Kamilah Sumner for “Heart of a Lion”.   Fest’s set is a bit longer and features a whole slew of tracks from his catalog.  Unfortunately, Fest and Mikk did NOT get together and perform “Chicagorillas”, “Fight with the Best” or “Good Ass Job”.

Gowherehiphop has a full rundown.
