Killer Mike has been busy defending his recent controversial interview on NRA TV. The Run The Jewels MC advocated for his right to bear arms in an interview with gun rights activist Colion Noir and some people have taken exception. One of those people is Chicago rapper Vic Mensa. “As a black man & fellow gun owner I would like to have a debate with you about your stances on gun-control,” he tweeted.
Mike quickly replied, noting that the two artists have the same publicists and that Mensa has his number.
It’s unclear if the two ever ended up connecting. Mensa joined Kim Kardashian and Kanye West in D.C. on Saturday alongside other celebs who participated in the March for Our Lives. The worldwide protest was organized by students and survivors of the Parkland shooting, which left 17 dead. Mensa also performed “We Could Be Free” during the rally..
In the wake of the shooting, students, celebrities, and activists have been attacking the NRA and calling for stricter gun control. Killer Mike, who is known for speaking out against racism and mass incarceration, has been singing a different tune. "I told my kids on the school walkout: 'I love you but if you walk out that school, walk out my house,'" he said during his interview. Watch the full clip below.
