Killer Mike will be attending this year’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner, which takes place this Saturday, just a day after he’s scheduled to give a talk on race relations at the Massachusetts Institute Of Technology. He’ll be there on behalf of The Huffington Post. Fellow musicians on the VIP list include Ciara, Gladys Knight, Pete Wentz, and Rob Thomas. Saturday Night Live’s Cecily Strong will be the host.
UPDATE: Here are some of Mike’s social media updates from the event.
