Los Angeles, CA, United States, 27th Dec 2023 – Killer Mike, known for his thought-provoking lyrics, social commentary, and his commitment to social justice causes, has captivated audiences worldwide with his musical prowess and activism.
The Grammy nomination is a testament to Killer Mike’s dedication to pushing boundaries, sparking conversations, and attempting to use his platform to bring about positive change. Throughout his career, he has been a vocal advocate for racial equality, economic empowerment, and political engagement.
All the above is great, especially with hip-hop turning the ripe old age of 50. As for some people, we agree that an artist who receives a Grammy award is a well-deserving person or a collective of individuals, such as the group Outkast, who has won multiple Grammy awards, which gave Killer Mike a Grammy for being featured on a song.
I have followed the careers of many artists, not just hip-hop artists but artists as a whole. I believe that artists, although human, should be held to a higher standard, meaning that anything that was done deplorably in the past shouldn’t be rewarded, regardless of whether you released a record that may have a few people snapping their fingers. It’s no secret that his nomination is solely based on a feature from the amazing Andre 3000 from the group Outkast. If the Grammy is awarded, it is for Andre, with Killer Mike only accepting the award. I’m not sure if anyone remembers, but a few years ago, Killer Mike did the most deplorable, unsanitary thing to another human being that can be done.
At the time, he and Big Boi of Outkast had a public beef. During this beef, Killer Mike “SPIT” in the face of Big Boi. I can remember this as if it was yesterday. I was wondering when it would resurface, and so it has. There was an event that both of them were booked for locally in Atlanta, GA, where this incident happened. Big Boi has forgiven Killer Mike for “SPITTING” in his face, but looking at the history and all that he has done for Killer Mike’s career, the culture should not forgive Killer Mike for spitting his saliva into another man’s face regardless of how he felt. That is a total show of disrespect for a man who is said to have saved your life, but you “SPIT” in Big Boi’s face. This act disrespects the man, artist, and one of the architects of hip-hop culture, Big Boi. People praise Killer Mike for things he hasn’t done for his community. One thing that he has done is “SPIT” in another man’s face. Spitting in the face of another person is extremely nasty and shouldn’t be celebrated or rewarded on any level, especially by the recording academy by way of a Grammy award.
It’s disrespectful to the man and the culture turning 50. There is evidence of this happening. Everything is online. Pay attention; rewards are earned and deserved. Breakfast Club, Drink Champs, TMZ, so many conversations are being held about hip hop. Let’s discuss how disrespectful it is to hip hop to “SPIT” in the face of another man. An award is a reward. No one deserves to be rewarded or awarded by the hip-hop culture for such a deplorable act, regardless of when it happened. Happy 50 years old to hip hop.
