Killer Mike is an Atlanta-based rapper and social activist who made his debut collaborating with OutKast and is one half of the hip-hop duo Run the Jewels.
Larger than life — both literally and figuratively — Killer Mike might have taken a circuitous route to fame but is now firmly established as hip-hop’s conscience in the "post-truth" Trump era. He first came to prominence at the turn of the millennium, guesting on cuts by his fellow Atlantans OutKast. And while his major-label debut was a critical success, his flirtation with the mainstream did not last. He returned in the mid-00s as an indie-rapper, which led to his creative zenith, a hard-hitting partnership with the leftfield rapper/producer, El-P. Their collaborative project, Run the Jewels, reinvented underground hip-hop in the 2010s. Away from music, Killer Mike is also a barbershop owner, actor, political activist and civic leader.
