Killer Mike's NRA Video Misused Against Marchers, He Says in Apology

Run the Jewels

Not going on NRA TV to do an interview that was going to come out the same time as the March For Our Lives.

Killer Mike's "Run the Jewels" partner El-P also came against the NRA, responding to Noir's highly controversial comments, which indicated that no one would know the name of the protesting Parkland students if their classmates had not died in a mass shooting on February 14.

In the earlier interview, Killer Mike said that he forbid his kids from participating in National Walkout Day because they are a gun-owning family that supports the Second Amendment. "It's possible to do both", he said.

While mentioning his gun-owning family doesn't support everything their allies do, he spoke on what he told his kids surrounding the school walkouts following the deadly Parkland, Fla., school shooting last month, saying "I love you, if you walk out that school, walk out of my house". "If we move on, the NRA and those against us will win", said Stoneman Douglas student Delaney Tarr at the rally.

Mike's statements have drawn a strong backlash from fans and others who saw it as harmful to causes like the fight against police brutality.

Mike also told the host that he refused to support an anti-bullying campaign as he believes "your child needs to get punched in the face so he can learn to punch someone back".




Rapper Killer Mike has warned that gun control in the United States is a way for the left to return black Americans to slavery.

And people have a problem with his appearance on an NRA-funded platform. But there are proven ways to make them safer. Bender, in response, said the two rappers had the same publicist and that Mensa knew how to reach him. "That's my take on it".

On Monday, El-P posted a letter on Twitter about Killer Mike's interview, saying he was waiting until the Atlanta rapper made an official statement until he said his piece.

During the interview, Killer Mike argued that the mainstream progressive movement doesn't always support issues that impact black communities specifically.

"African Americans have only been free for 54 years".

I'm sure Black NRA members have these conversations among themselves all the time and I, to a degree, understand why black people, especially from the South, have a sense of gun culture that is foreign to me. The NRA has a history of racist antics which include not defending Philando Castile after he was killed by a cop although he legally owned the gun he was carrying.
