Killer Mike apologizes for interview with NRA TV

Watch Killer Mike Voice His Support for Gun Ownership in New NRA Video

After appearing in an interview with NRATV, the rapper claims his appearance was misused by the gun advocacy organization.

Rapper Killer Mike said Sunday that his interview on NRATV, the broadcast arm of the National Rifle Association, was misused by the network to "disparage" the "March for Our Lives", which he said he supports. He wanted to focus on black gun ownership and the NRA used that video to undermine the Parkland students and protestors, something he supports.

Killer Mike has since responded with an equally passionate statement.

Now, El-P has defended Mike for the first time and admitted their differences were an integral part of their friendship. "There was also a shooting on that campus".

The Parkland kids' campaign has captured a national mood in the USA, and gun control is firmly on the agenda.

He said in the videos that his interview about black gun ownership in the US was recorded a week before the march. And that conversation is about African American gun ownership.African Americans have only been free for 54 years. "I'm sorry that an interview I did about a minority-black people in this country-and gun rights was used as a weapon against you guys". He said he was sorry that the organization used it on the same day as the March For Our Lives rally.

In addition, the district only had four schools designated for black students while there was a whopping 18 for white students. The NAACP, as well as the Governer of Kansas, tweeted in memory of Brown and her contributions to Black rights.

Yesterday, the Atlanta rapper/activist issued an apology to the kids who participated in the march, saying that he's always been an activist and an organizer, and supports young people who who take the initiative to stand up for their rights. "It's possible to do both", Mike said, NPR reported.

"There was something that the woman who is the NRA spokesperson [Dana Loesch] said and everybody just kinda lost it..."

While El-P did not agree exactly with what Killer Mike had said he considers the people marching for gun control to be heroes.

He later added: "He doesn't need me to defend him but fuck that here we are and I'm doing that".

Since the release of his 2012 breakout solo album R.A.P. Music - for which Meline produced the majority of beats, the beginning of their successful collaboration - Killer Mike has become known for his political engagement, including vociferous support of Bernie Sanders in the last presidential election and fairly nuanced dissections of institutionalized racism in his work.

The rapper, whose given name is Michael Render, opposes gun control. I endorse gun ownership.
