Killer Mike on Ferguson, Race

Watch Killer Mike’s Powerful Speech on the Ferguson Grand Jury Decision

Over the summer, Killer Mike emerged as one of the most impassioned voices of reason in the hip-hop community following the fatal police shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, in August. He spoke out on Fox News and CNN, in an op-ed he wrote for Billboard, and in various interviews. By coincidence, as Stereogum points out, he and Run the Jewels partner El-P were in St. Louis on Monday night for a stop on their current tour. And the duo took the stage shortly after the grand jury’s decision’s not to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson was announced.
