We already knew that Killer Mike is a champion, and now it seems he has a title belt to prove it. During their set at Treasure Island Music Festival in San Francisco this past weekend, Big Grams — a.k.a. Big Boi and Phantogram — were joined by Run The Jewels to perform “Born To Shine,” a collaboration between the two groups from this year’s Big Grams EP. Killer Mike entered the stage like any title-holder should: with a wrestling-style championship belt draped over his shoulder.

Watch footage of the performance above.

In related news, Killer Mike said on Instagram today that he and El-P want to start a boy band with Run The Jewels collaborator and Rage Against the Machine frontman Zack de la Rocha, and while we don’t really believe it, we so badly want to:


Me, El & Zach been thinking of starting a boy band. #NameUs
