Killer Mike Honored By Atlanta City Council With “Killer Mike Day”

Killer Mike continues to flourish as a musician, activist and business proprietor. The Run The Jewels founder was recently honored with Killer Mike Day by the Atlanta City Council.

On July 17, City Councilman Andre Dickens declared it to be Michael “Killer Mike” Render Day in the A. The “Legend Has It” rapper has been a fixture in voicing the community’s political and social challenges; specifically with regards to empowering the under-serviced.

“I respect you in so many ways, you represent the ATL well,” proclaimed Dickens. State Senator Vincent Fort seconded the motion in saying, “I appreciate this brother because he inspires so many people.”

The MC also took on another Rap alias “Driller Mike” as a multi-million dollar tunnel-boring machine that will be used to host over 2.4 billions gallons of drinking water in Atlanta will bear his name.

Rather than focusing on thanking family and friends, Mike took the podium to address the council stating, “My Atlanta City Council members, I challenge you to make sure this city is not polarized by race and or class.”
