Listen to “Kill Jill,” his collaboration with Killer Mike and Jeezy, below via Apple Music. Big Boi’s representative confirmed to Pitchfork that “Kill Jill” samples a song by the virtual Japanese pop star Hatsune Miku.

I've been watching reactions to this song in reviews, article comments, and various social media platforms. Haven't seen one hiphop fan yet complain about the vocals being too high, or artificial sounding, or grating, or that GUMI would have been better. ;-) Feedback has been really positive.

I'm very curious how they came to use this track. DATA is a pretty old Miku song (Dec 2008 I think), but it's not all that well known. Was it the producer or one of the rappers who had heard it? Were they looking for something Vocaloid specifically, or was it happenstance?

One thing I came across is that Big Boi apparently has a young goddaughter named Miku. Maybe he has a friend who is a fan and that's the connection?

Big Boi might (heavy emphasis on MIGHT) be performing Kill Jill on The Tonight Show tonight. So you know, it might be a huge effing deal and all. He also put out a different a different single the same day Kill Jill was released by the way.
