US Grammy-Winning Rapper Mike Detained Amidst Triumph.
Why Killer Mike was detained?
According to Mike Lopez, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles police, the detention was linked to an altercation within the arena where the Grammy ceremony unfolded.
The rapper was subsequently booked on a misdemeanour charge but was later released. Killer Mike is expected to make a court appearance later this month to address the incident.
Video footage from the scene depicted Killer Mike being escorted in handcuffs by police officers. This unforeseen occurrence transpired in the aftermath of his victories in multiple categories.
His song “Scientists & Engineers,” featuring André 3000, Future, and Eryn Allen Kane, earned him accolades for the best rap song and best rap performance. Furthermore, his album “Michael” secured him the prestigious title of having the best rap album.
Addressing the audience upon receiving his awards, Killer Mike conveyed a powerful message: “This is for all the people who think you’re too old to rap… we keep hip-hop alive. Never ever stop doing what you do.” The rapper’s arrest prompted onlookers at the arena to shout “free Mike,” echoing their support.
Killer Mike has been a vocal advocate on issues concerning black Americans, notably police brutality and racism. Despite the unexpected turn of events, his resilience and dedication to his craft remain unwavering.
