Killer Mike apologizes for NRA video

Killer Mike apologizes for NRA video

Concluded Killer Mike, "I do support the march and I support black people owning guns".

Run The Jewels rapper El-P has defended bandmate Killer Mike, after he defended gun ownership in a divisive interview with the National Rifle Association (NRA).

Early Saturday, the NRA posted a short video to drive up membership, asking viewers to "Stand and Fight for Our Kinds' Safety by Joining NRA".

It's also a meaningful number to the NRA itself, as it has repeatedly encouraged its supporters to not only follow the official NRA account, but also its allies on both Twitter and Facebook.


That's not the same message he wanted to share with the students who marched on Saturday. He continued to say that despite "stumbles" or "bad decisions'" or having messages misinterpreted, that "I cannot and will not ever turn my back on this man".

Fans already know that Killer Mike has been increasingly active in the political scene, using his voice and platform to speak on racial and socioeconomic issues. "Yet we can lose that many kids in a weekend, two weekends in the inner-city on a regular basis, and nobody really has that kind of effort going toward stopping it". "You're a lackey of the progressive movement because you have never disagreed with the people who tell you what to do".

Following El-P's tweet, Killer Mike retweeted the letter, thanking the rapper for his continued support.

After praising the students of Parkland, Fla. and the students who participated in the 2018 March for Our Lives, El-P praised Killer Mike as a good person, who he would never turn his back on just due to their differences.


"That interview was used a week later by NRATV to disparage a very noble campaign that I actually support", Killer Mike said in a video shared on Twitter. Killer Mike claims that the interview was shot a week before it was aired.

"I wish a hero like Blaine Gaskill had been at Marjory Douglas High School last month because your classmates would still be alive and no one would know your names", said Mr.

"I told my kids on the school walkout: 'I love you". Its owed to them and many others.

In the interview with NRA TV, the Atlanta rapper advocated for black gun ownership and discouraged his children from participating in school walkouts as a form of protest. People like @KillerMike speaking out have completely different reasons to own guns than others will.
