Killer Mike – Atlanta Press Conference. Killer Mike delivers a powerful speech on CBS about the current state of affairs in Atlanta. I am uploading this because this needs to reach as many people as possible.
Michael Santiago Render (born April 20, 1975), better known by his stage name Killer Mike, is an American rapper, songwriter, actor, and activist. He is the founder of Grind Time Official Records, which he launched through the SMC and Fontana Distribution. Mike made his debut on “Snappin’ and Trappin'” from OutKast‘s 2000 LP Stankonia, and later appeared on the Grammy-winning song “The Whole World” from their greatest hits album Big Boi and Dre Present…Outkast. He has since released five full-length albums as a solo artist.
Mike is also known as a social and political activist, focusing on subjects including social inequality, police brutality, and systemic racism. In addition to addressing themes of racism and police brutality in his music, he has also delivered several lectures at colleges and universities, written about social justice topics for publications such as Billboard, and been the subject of interviews regarding police misconduct and race relations. He was a visible and vocal supporter of Bernie Sanders’ 2016 U.S. presidential campaign, refusing to support Hillary Clinton after Sanders left the race, and again supported Sanders in his 2020 presidential campaign.
