When Killer Mike drops the mic, he has a Plan B lined up. He wants to serve on the Atlanta school board.
The artist is no stranger to politics. In 2015 he pondered a write-in bid for the state house. More recently he was honored at a day in his honor at Atlanta City Hall not long ago.
As AJC reporter Leon Stafford reported at the time, the artist who would likely be known on a ballot as Mike Render received a proclamation saluting his music, his barber shop chain and for representing Atlanta on various broadcast appearances. Not to mention the $11.6 million tunnel-boring machine being used to create a reservoir for Atlanta whose name he inspired: “Driller Mike.”
