Killer Mike

Killer Mike has been one of the loudest, most insightful voices among the many speaking out on the crisis in Ferguson, Missouri following the fatal shooting of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown by a white policeman. First he posted some short thoughts on Instagram, then a lengthier op-ed for Billboard. Today the rapper, whose father was a police officer, stopped by CNN to discuss the nature of the conflict in impassioned yet diplomatic fashion. Watch below.

  1. Killer Mike is high up on my list of “Favorite People on this Planet”

    You can see how overwhelmingly impressed that reporter is the entire interview.

  2. This is great.

    It’s impossible to overstate how much love and respect I have for Mike. Every album, every interview, every local tour date, I’m there. Possibly my favorite currently-active musician.

  3. This is inspiring. There’s more nuance and intelligence here than we almost ever see on cable news, and always with his eye to the bigger picture. Killer Mike is someone who needs to be heard, both as artist and activist.

  4. I guess I’m dumb, but I just got it! Killer Mike kills the mic!

  5. I came here for Killer Mike and was not disappointed. G*d Bless.
