Killer Mike might have his sights set on Taylor Swift.

The Atlanta native appeared on The Daily Show on Tuesday night, where he discussed his Grammy wins, his arrest, and other headline moments from the awards show. Host Jordan Klepper was particularly interested in what Mike thought about Swift snubbing Céline Dion when accepting Album of the Year for Midnights.

“Shouts out to Taylor, man,” the 48-year-old MC said at around the one-minute mark. “Goddamn, she won at the Grammys. Her boyfriend won the Chiefs,” he said of Travis Kelce. “If she’s into poly, me and my wife need a third. We’re trying to win again!” 

Klepper then wondered if Mike was on a high after winning three Grammys. “I feel I could pull it off,” Mike joked. “Only problem is my wife’s good with a gun. She doesn’t agree. But I’ll keep trying for all the men out there."

Mike was quick to emphasize that he wasn't genuinely shooting a shot but rather "talking shit joking on a show a comedy show."

"Taylor got a man and I ain't Ursher!!!" he added.

Shoot a shot. Stop playing. I was talking shit joking on a show a comedy show. Taylor Got a Man and I aint Ursher!!! 🤣🤣🤣

After taking home the award for Best Rap Album, Best Rap Song, and Best Rap Performance, Killer Mike was handcuffed and detained by LAPD at the arena for a physical altercation with venue security.

Though he hasn’t been able to divulge the details of the arrest, he and his team issued a statement following the incident.

“I am better than OK," he shared. "As you can imagine, there was a lot going and there was some confusion around which door my team and I should enter. We experienced an over-zealous security guard but my team and I have the upmost confidence that I will ultimately be cleared of all wrongdoing.”
