KILLER MIKE GIVES HIS UNFILTERED POLITICAL THOUGHTS ON KANYE WEST, LIL WAYNE, ICE CUBE, DEMOCRATS & REPUBLICANS

Killer Mike has emerged as strong political voice in the current landscape.

During a recent discussion with co-founder and executive editor of The Recount John Heilemann for the Hell & High Water with John Heilemann podcast, the Run The Jewels powerhouse and activist spoke on a bevy of topics — from Lil Wayne’s Donald Trump endorsement to Ice Cube’s behind-the-scenes work with the current administration.

Par for the course, Mike was honest and blunt about his opinions on each subject.

“I don’t know why Wayne did the endorsement,” he said of Wayne. “I’m still a Lil Wayne fan. He is one of the greatest rappers on fucking earth, but I suspect, like 50 Cent said, they offer you a million bucks, shoot, they might’ve given to Wayne … They offered 50 a million. Shit, Weezy, they might’ve offered Weezy three or four, you know?

“And, shit, I wouldn’t support Trump, but if you called me with a five million dollar offer, I at least got to roll over and say, ‘Shea [his wife], they offered us five fucking million.’ She’s going to say, ‘Go to fucking sleep.’ You know what I mean? So I’m sure that his endorsement was they paid, right? That’s not to say right or wrong. That’s simply to say, politicians are bought by lobbyists. Politicians spread money around.”
