First things first, Killer Mike is as informed and articulate as they come. So whenever he uses the mic or his celebrity as a platform to address the issues that have plagued the Mike Brown murder, the consequential protests in the city of #Ferguson and suddenly a grand jury’s decision to not indict officer Darren Wilson for the fatal shooting of Brown, it is usually in our best interest that we listen. Last night at a Run The Jewels show in St. Louis, MO, video surfaced of Killer Mike emotionally speaking out about the injustice of Wilson being able to walk away from the shooting of Mike Brown without any culpability. The disappointment, hurt, anguish and fervor with which he spoke as he fought back tears echoed sentiments of many who feel that “the machine,” as he referred to America’s societal and judicial system, is flawed and broken. Hit the jump to watch the powerful video.
