f honesty is brutal and the truth hurts, Killer Mike is pain personified. Known among his peers as a man who holds his tongue for no one (not even his mentors Outkast), Killa Kill from Adamsville has used his talents to speak on whatever comes to mind and doesn’t give a damn what you think about it. Rather, he’s concerned that you think about it.

I’ma make sure that never happens again.”
