Killer Mike is one of the great interviews in all of popular music, as he showed in a recent CNN appearance, in which he talked, with great eloquence and emotion, about the fucking absurd police presence at the protests in Ferguson, Missouri. But Mike also appears to know how to tailor his message to his audience, and he came off just as well earlier this week, when he was interviewed on Fox Business Network (by the former Alternative Nation VJ Kennedy!) to talk about the police presence in Ferguson. Mike’s father is a former Atlanta police officer, and on Fox, he talked about how the best way for police to stay safe is to become involved with the communities they’re promoting. He also ingratiated himself with the Fox set by mentioning his NRA membership and invoking his Constitutional rights. If anyone can get a message across on Fox News, it’s this guy. Watch it below.
