Killer Mike Arrested at the Grammys
Killer Mike

Killer Mike finds himself caught in a whirlwind of highs and lows. The talented rapper snagged three Grammy Awards recently, marking a pinnacle in his career. However, the celebratory mood took an unexpected turn when reports surfaced that he was taken into custody by police shortly after receiving his accolades at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, CA.


The initial news of Mike's arrest was brought to light by Chris Gardner of The Hollywood Reporter who shared videos on social media capturing the rapper being led away in handcuffs by multiple police officers. While details about the charges remained elusive at the time, an unnamed official mentioned it was categorized as a "misdemeanor" and assured it had "nothing to do with anything that happened today here inside the arena."


Mike clinched victories in all three categories he was nominated for at this year's Grammys. His album, aptly titled MIKE, secured the Best Rap Album award, while his single SCIENTISTS & ENGINEERS, featuring André 3000, Future, and Eryn Allen Kane, earned him Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance. The collaborators also reaped the rewards of their collective effort.



Heading into the televised segment of the Grammy Awards, Killer Mike stands tied for the second-most wins this year, sharing the spot with Boygenius. Phoebe Bridgers, one-third of Boygenius, leads with four victories, including one separate from the group. This Grammy night significantly elevates Mike's career, considering he had previously won only one Grammy in 2003 as a featured artist on OutKast’s THE WHOLE WORLD. He earned another nomination in 2018 as part of the group Run the Jewels but fell short that year.


While the first half of the 2024 Grammy Awards has concluded with the Premiere Ceremony, where numerous awards were presented before the televised event, the anticipation builds for the main show starting at 5:00 PM PST/8:00 PM EST.
