Rapper Killer Mike on Monday reacted to reports claiming that he was arrested and detained at the 2024 Grammy Awards on Sunday night.
The rapper featured on V103’s Big Tigger Morning Show after partying all night. He downplayed getting handcuffed and detained.
The 48-year-old won three Grammys prior to the start of the main ceremony.
However, reports emerged that Killer Mike’s happy moment was cut short as he was handcuffed. Authorities reportedly held him until the end of the show and it was due to a previous incident that had nothing to do with the Grammy Awards.
“I won a Grammy,” Mike said. “We party all night. Shout out to my record label. Ain’t nothing had happened, man. But we winners. That’s it. We hit a speed bump and then we hit back to the party.”
Killer Mike’s focus
Sunday night marked Mike’s first Grammy Award win since 2003.
Then, he won for his feature on OutKast’s “The Whole World” in the best rap performance by a duo or group. He was also nominated in 2018.
“I wasn’t carried outta nowhere. I didn’t carry… we not even gonna allow you to ask that question,” Mike said, stressing how an Atlanta rapper won best rap album for an LP released during hip hop’s 50th anniversary.
