Killer Mike is the kind of man that I wish I was related to. He’s eloquent, considered, and most of all he’s not afraid to own up to his own shortcomings as a human. When ACCLAIM spent some time with him¬†on the recent Run The Jewels tour he managed to convert the majority of the office from fans of his music to disciples of his teachings. Seriously, Mike’s is a voice that is much needed in the current political and cultural landscape.

That’s why it’s especially cool to see him giving props to none other than Australia’s own Tkay Maidza at a recent lecture at MIT University. Touching on the subject of cultural appropriation, Mike shifts the focus from the controversial Iggy Azalea to the groundswell of support behind Tkay locally. He also touches on the very public actions of artists like Kanye and Azealia Banks, framing them within context and with a degree of nuance.
