“All my heroes have been in handcuffs,” Killer Mike opens up about his arrest at the Grammys

The rapper was arrested mere moments after winning three Grammys earlier this month and charged with misdemeanor battery for a security guard altercation.

The rapper and activist was led away by police after winning three awards for reportedly “knocking down” a security guard at the Feb. 4 ceremony, but continued his victory lap Monday on “The View” by telling viewers that all his heroes “have been in handcuffs.”

Although the rapper said that he can’t discuss his recent arrest too much since the legal matter is ongoing, he briefly spoke about the incident after “View” co-host Sunny Hostin brought it up.

Reports HuffPo: “Killer Mike has been one of the most politically outspoken rappers of his generation. He has brought attention to social justice and civil rights issues, including redlining and police brutality, and previously endorsed Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) to lead the country.

Killer Mike swept all three categories he was nominated in at the Grammys and won Best Rap Album for “Michael,” and Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance for “Scientists & Engineers.” The father of four was handcuffed moments later.”
