Killer Mike Speaks Out After Cops Interrogated Him: Following his interrogation and handcuffing by police at the 2024 Grammys, Killer Mike has decided to speak out. After the Atlanta rapper’s wins for “Scientist & Engineers” (best rap song) and “best rap performance” (best rap album) at the pre-telecast ceremony, the incident happened.
Los Angeles police officers were seen escorting the performer out of Crypto.com Arena in a video provided by Chris Gardner of The Hollywood Reporter on X (previously Twitter).
According to X, the Los Angeles Police Department verified on Sunday night that they had arrested a man who “was detained & handcuffed for a physical altercation that occurred at the 700 block of Chick Hearn Court” and taken him to the LAPD Central Division.
There was a plethora of activity, and my team and I were confused about which door to enter. My team and I are absolutely certain that I will be found innocent in the end, even though we had an overzealous security guard.
In a statement released with PEOPLE, Killer Mike encouraged everyone to keep listening to Michael and pursuing their aspirations until that day comes.
To arrest killer Mike immediately after the Grammies propaganda…. A lot of people are questioning the decision making and bases of the award choosing in the gen z era… their timing to award black men be totally off!

“A number of calls from concerned fans and colleagues wanting to know if I was OK” were received, according to Killer Mike and his staff.
According to Killer Mike, “I am better than OK,” but he nonetheless expressed gratitude for the love and concern. In addition to thanking the Recording Academy for his accolades, he announced another major victory after the event.
Indulging in this moment, we are filled with immense pride. Also, I’m thankful that my prayer for a kidney transplant has been answered; the news came the day after I won my Grammy; my son had been waiting on the transplant list for years, and now he has a match. To put it simply, he was overjoyed, according to his statement.
Mike faces misdemeanor charges, according to a source who spoke with PEOPLE. The source said that Mike’s legal team is “confident that the facts of the case when laid bare, will show that Mike did not commit the alleged offense, and he will be exonerated.”
X was the platform where Killer Mike expressed his gratitude to Shay and his loved ones for their unwavering support.
