Killer Mike is asked to appear on CNN to talk about Michael Brown and Ferguson.
Since he showed up on the scene in Atlanta in the late '90s, Killer Mike has been a big man with even bigger opinions on government, social justice and law enforcement. The son of a police officer, Mike seems to view the ongoing situation in Ferguson, Missouri with more scrutiny than most rappers have mustered, having already written lengthy op-eds on the subject on Instagram and Billboard.
Earlier today, Mike was invited onto CNN to speak about the subject. Introducing him by showing an excerpt of his very political "Reagan" video, host Brooke Baldwin converses with the MC for over ten minutes.
Mike's main point is that, if the officer responsible for Brown's death isn't arrested, "all of our rights are continually thrown out of the window."
