Killer Mike has spoken for the first time since his arrest at the 2024 Grammys. The rapper, who won three awards at the ceremony, spoke to V103’s Big Tigger Morning Show. Though he was reluctant to discuss the misdemeanor battery arrest in any great detail, he did describe it as being nothing more than a "speed bump" on an otherwise successful evening.
Asked what happened at the Crypto.com arena on Sunday night, Mike replied simply: "I won a Grammy." He then added, "We party all night. Shout out to my record label. Ain’t nothing had happened, man. But we winners. That’s it."
Radio host Tigger then asked more directly why Mike had to leave the arena. "Didn’t I look good? I was fresh. All black man," Mike responded. "Then I went and picked up all the gold… We hit a speed bump and then we hit back to the party."
Mike appeared on the breakfast show after staying up all night celebrating his success. The veteran Atlanta rapper won Best Rap Album for his 2023 project Michael, as well as Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song for “Scientists & Engineers,” a track from the album featuring André 3000.
