Good conversation. And hella cool? Which part, you ask, is cool? That funk pioneer George Clinton and Killer Mike have a barbershop sit down? That they do it at Mike’s place – the SWAG Shop? That two legends still living the dream thought enough of us to film this realness?

Killer Mike Speaks On His Anger And Fears In The Wake Of More Police Killings Of Black People (Video)

Without fail, Killer Mike is ALWAYS speaking poingnantly with passion about matters affecting the people… his people. Sometimes it’s a wonder how he keeps answering the call to speak. Frustration we all feel, way before he and those of like mind began to #FeelTheBern

This is all truth. No slick talk and no backtracking. Notice how he does not have to couch his statements in the typical ‘all cops are not bad’ rhetoric, because he is out there with the police in his town – forging relationships, ensuring that they will feel/be compelled to protect & serve in his community. He touches on that. He has not abandoned talk on political movements we need to make either: VOTE out the folks who refuse to look out for the people in the community… VOTE THEM OUT! And he continues to bang the drum for a show of Black economic power: Want to move those in power, move your money away from them and toward folks you wish to empower.

None of this is new, but Killer Mike keeps speaking it. As frustrating as it must be. The truth is easy to repeat; because it’s not a ‘platform’ or something he has to ‘make up’ or remember. Watch Mike Render speak on his fears and frustrations with the two recent tragic losses of two Black Lives that did not Matter to cops who took them.

Hidden Colors 4: “The Religion of White Supremacy” (Trailer)

In America you hear talk about Police Brutality, Racism, and how Economics are used to disparage the Black community.  Rarely do we hear talk about the one topic synonymous with all of those which is White Supremacy.  Not saying that White people are superior to Blacks but the mind state of White Supremacy gives birth to so many racial issues not just in the US but the world.

Tariq Nasheed has decided to put this topic front and center with his latest installment of his critically acclaimed Hidden Colors series.  The documentary series that has had important black voices like Dr Francis Cress Welsing (RIP), Dr. Umar Johnson, Dick Gregory.  Also entertainers like Paul Mooney, David Banner, & Nas.  Tariq has released the official trailer and you can bet that organizations like Fox News, StormFront ad other race baiting groups will not be happy.  I look forward to the Atlanta premier and happy to see that Atlanta Rapper/Activist Killer Mike is part of the fourth installment along with Jim Brown, Dr Boyce Watkins to name a few.  So check out the trailer and get ready to go check it out official date not released yet but we will keep you informed here at

Politics: Killer Mike Endorses Bernie Sanders For President (Video)

If you lean to the left (e.g. are likely to vote Democrat in the coming 2016 U.S. election), you should be gathering information and forming impressions NOW. Because before you know it, you will have a decision to make. Every person who has ever run for office has understood that, in order to win, she or he must be supported and admired (and hated) by the right people. So, if you’re thinking Hilary Clinton’s the one, I hope you are learning who is for and against her. Alternatively, if you are taking a hard look at Bernie Sanders – “feeling the Bern” as it were – then you should take a look at the clip above. We KNOW you love Hip-Hop and the Culture if you come to this site often. But maybe “Politics As Usual” has soured you on voting (or even caring). I hope you read my VOTE DAMMIT! posts on here (whether you lean left or right). But maybe they don’t fire you up. But this vid… this vid right here… Just play it. Watch Killer Kill From Adamsville, and it will GIVE YOU BACK YOUR FIRE and make you care about the fight again. In a most powerful way, his speech above makes it clear: Killer Mike Endorses Bernie Sanders, the next President of the United States!

Now sure, you will make your own decision in that ballot box, but a candidate is known and judged by the company she or he keeps; and the enemies she or he makes. Do your research. Who is in who’s corner? What fights is your candidate picking? I’m not sure I completely #FeelTheBern yet, but the temperature is rising.

Oh, and just in case you are thinking this is just more ‘politicking’ peep after the jump. The whole event, including what Bernie Sanders has to say (and eat).

Nas Made Them ‘Run The Jewels’ During Festival In New York (Video)

Killer Mike and El-P (aka Run The Jewels) had to have dreamed of rocking a festival stage coming up. Check. Dreamed of of that crowd; ravenous fans wilding out in front of the stage. Check. But in their wildest dreams… rocking a stage with the G.O.D.M.C. Nas though? Yoooo! Watch and feel the energy stage side where they were shootin’… this video.

Killer Mike Dishes On Dolezal With Larry Wilmore And Guests On ‘The Nightly Show’ (Video)

Killer Mike is hilarious! Still clever in this clip though. Joined across the table by comediennes Natasha Leggero and ‘The Nightly Show’ regular Robin Thede, the show discussion focused comedic fire on Rachel ‘I still consider myself Black’ Dolezal. Clever conversation with bite, but not vicious. Funny, but they do get to some cultural fine points brought up by the former NAACP official’s Blackishness making front page news. Don’t know if they really nailed down an answer to the “Does Rachel get a pass?” question… Then again, who says that was the point? Watch, enjoy, ponder a bit.

Great bonus footage after the jump.

Bill Maher and panelists John Waters, Heather McGhee, Charles Murray and Michael Render – aka Killer Mike – discuss the criticism of Michelle Obama’s Tuskegee (home to our own @ojones1) speech and the underlying causes of the Baltimore riots (above).

“…Why are you burning down your own community? [We] burned down a community that [we] don’t own!”
Killer Mike

Bam! Folks don’t destroy what they truly own. Makes sense, right? Mike always does. Continue after the jump with more Killer Mike telling it like it T-I-’tis (like the elders say) – especially about Bill O’Reilly – on HBO’s Real Time With Bill Maher. Also have the bonus show, Overtime, embedded after the jump.

Killer Mike Speaks On Race And Politics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) [Video]

That White House Correspondents’ Dinner we just posted on? Yeah… Killer Mike was there. The man is up on his politics to say the least. He also lectured at The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) as part of the university’s ‘Hip-Hop Speaker’ Series. Intelligent discourse at one of America’s well-known gatherings of advanced thinkers. Killer Kill has always spoken up (and well) on issues regarding Hip-Hop politics and humanity. The clips from MIT (starting above, continuing after the jump) give more testimony to that.
