Killer Mike Declares Himself A Write-In Candidate For Georgia’s State Legislature

Run The Jewels’ Killer Mike declared himself a write-in candidate for state representative in Georgia’s District 55 via Instagram today. The Atlanta native’s activism has been well-documented over the course of Run The Jewels’ rapid rise; he’s given talks on police brutality and fractured race relations at NYU and MIT and written op-eds for Billboard about Ferguson and Baltimore. He also made a command performance on Real Time With Bill Maher back in May and has been a regular commentator on CNN. He’s on record as an outspoken activist, so it seems only logial that he would attempt to take that commitment to the next level. Check out Killer Mike’s announcement below, and please, if you’re voting for Mike in his district make sure to write-in “Michael Render.” Forget the stage name.
