*UPDATE: Killer Mike has announced that he is not eligible to run for Georgia representative. See his message below.
Killer Mike has been hinting at joining politics in some form or fashion for awhile now, and tomorrow he’ll make the dive by running for Georgia state representative.
Today the Atlanta rapper announced on Instagram that he’s entering the competition after the former rep Tyrone Brooks went down in a blaze of charges including tax, mail, and wire fraud. Considering how vocal Mike has been in the past year about violence against blacks in this country, it’s no surprise he’s trying to get more involved.
Mike will also be on Larry Wilmore’s “The Nightly Show” tonight at 11:30 PM EST. Chances are he’ll be discussing his move into politics, so tune in.
