*The rapper known as Killer Mike is also known for speaking his mind when it comes to social and political matters.
With that in mind, it should come as no surprise that in an appearance on Bill Maher‘s “Real Time” show on HBO Friday night, KM had no problem opining on a slew of topics, ranging from race relations, to the Baltimore riots and Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly who’s made it his business to be a thorn in the side of Hip Hop.
Lately O’Reilly has been making claims that Hip Hop is to blame for the decline of Christianity. Well the “Southern Fried” MC ain’t havin’ it
“I like Bill O’Reilly the character but I hate how white people take him so seriously,” Mike stated to Maher. “He’s more full of sh-t than an outhouse. I’m gonna go in a black club and see Bill O’Reilly with a stripper on his lap, I guarantee you that. He’s as fictional as those books he writes.”
Killer Mike (real name Michael Render) went to say that Christian faith and black women go hand in hand, stating that African American women hold their faith very dear to their hearts. He took it even further, standing firm on his love for Hip-Hop and the Rap movement, and comparing the likes of the late Tupac to Jesus.
“He was arguably a black guy, or at least dark,” he said. “Hung with a posse of homies, one of them was strapped with a knife. Went to war with the government, lost, like a lot of black guys do. And everybody loved him more after he died, like Tupac.”
