America witnessed a horrific scene at the U.S. Capitol building in Washington D.C. on Wednesday (January 6) when a swath of fired-up Trump supporters stormed the building, causing both the Senate and House to be evacuated. Five deaths and 52 arrests later, the embers are still falling as Congress puts the pieces back together.
Killer Mike, never one to hold his tongue when it comes to polarizing socio-political issues, watched the blatant breach unfold on television. During an appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers on Wednesday night, the Run The Jewels MC admitted he woke up on a “high” knowing his home state of Georgia went blue. But then he got a call from his 13-year-old daughter alerting to him to events taking place at the Capitol Building and used it as a teaching moment.
