Killer Mike Receives Inaugural Change Maker Award At 2020 Billboard Music Awards

Towards the end of his acceptance speech, he said, “I’m a product of Atlanta, I appreciate the West Side of Atlanta for making me.”
On Wednesday night Killer Mike accepted the first-ever Change Maker Award at the 2020 Billboard Music Awards.

Killer Mike received the award following his dedication to social justice amid the political climate of the nation. Atlanta mayor Keshia Lance Bottoms presented him the award from the APEX Museum of African American history.

During his acceptance speech, he shared, “Kids out here that sing and dance: What you do is worthy.” He also added “You are artists and your goal should be to express the very reality around you in the very most beautiful or ugliest of ways you see fit. Kids who run and dance and sing and jump and all that, all the things they tell you don’t matter — you matter more than you know.”
