One of my favorite artists is KIller Mike, 1/2 of the group Run The Jewels. Not only a rapper, he's also a social activist. I think a lot of what he says is right on. It makes a lot of people angry, but the truth usually does. I politely ask that you please watch both videos before commenting if you can.

Speaking at the All Black National Convention. He makes some people so mad they stand up and scream at him.



The origin of the term trap, and why he supports the KKKs right to march


Whether you agree with him or not, he makes some good points, no matter where on the political spectrum you see yourself. I'm really just interested in what everyone's thoughts on what he's saying is? Growing up in similar places, I see a lot of truth. But I know in cases like this, perception is 9/10's of the law. An orange is an apple to some people.

He kept it real AF and then that fat ass lard tub had to try to yell over a Man with a microphone.


Someone shut that whale up.

Though I don't like the racial nationalism, nor the talk of revolution, he is dead on about free speech and the KKK.

I agree. I feel the same way. It'll be nice when not trying to impose on others how to live is seen as a "good" thing.

Well, just like Big Joe & his bicycle, Killer Mike absolutely pwned the crowd with logic and knowledge, and gives it to the parents of todays kids, saying they (the parents) are to blame for a lot of todays community and social issues - the reactions of some of the crowd are, in my opinion, indicative of those most guilty of perpetrating the issues he is discussing.

Thanks - I agree with what Killer Mike says in both these videos but particularly the first one.

I agree with some of his points.
But he sure talks a lot about division rather than unity.
"Raising a warrior"?
Who does he plan on fighting?
Sorry but not very impressed with this rant.
That's really all it was...

If you are looking for in influential positive role model for black communities look here NOT the rap community.

Talking about the division that already exists isn't promoting division.

For a good portion of my life, I have wished for the next MLK to step up to the plate and help poor people (not race driven) rise up to the system in ways that are positive and influential. Within the last year or 2, I have wished that man to be Killer Mike. I find him to be one of the strongest activists for human unity to surface in some time, and look forward to witness the social impact he is capable of!

He's so right, but then again half of it is about an actual war. The perspective he approaches with it (being self-reliant people with strength derived from skills instead of ignorance & stupidity), if that's how everyone approached life we wouldn't have so many insane barbarians, or even problems & divisions hardly at all.

Here's another good one that dude ran the thread title way wrong and had no content so the thread didn't make it:

In his constructive facepalming of them, he's also telling them to train to fight and kill.

Killer Mike is definitely close to that level right now.

He perfectly described what happens when you become dependent on the welfare state.

As for the "raising a warrior" bit, who does he plan on fighting? In case some people didn't notice, America was the country that ended slavery in the west, specifically Republicans, and gave the black community civil rights which produced leaders like MLK and Malcolm X.

Do they want to destroy the best system they've ever had?

He's just telling them to be prepared. What's wrong with knowing how to defend yourself, no matter what might happen?

I agree and it might be prudent for Killer Mike to tone down his Black Panther styled talk. There are some good ole boys outside of Amarillo that might take it the wrong way.

Just sayin....

I've always liked him as a rapper. He has his moments, but sometimes he comes off like an intelligent idiot. At least you didn't put up one of Vlad's Lord Jamar interviews.

I saw this posted either earlier or in the morning. And decided I would go look at it later.

I am so glad I did. Much of that speech should resonate with a LOT of ATS. NO matter what color one may be. Or what political persuasion one may be.

I was done after the fishing question..in regard to answering 'yes I can", lol.

He is a fantastic speaker. Makes a TON of just real sense.

I think he should have an AMA on here for preppers and constitutionalists. He will definitely tell the truth.

Thank you for posting that. I watched it with eyes wide open.

You are right on that. I tend to listen around that. If he adjusted his speech just a smidge...he would be a millionaire speaker.
