Our hearts are heavy today. Last night’s Grand Jury ruling on the Ferguson shooting brought very little surprise, but a lot of sadness. Killer Mike has been an incredible, much needed voice in the wake of the Ferguson shooting, and that continued last night. By sheer coincidence, Run The Jewels happened to be performing at the Ready Room in St. Louis on the same night a Grand Jury voted not to indict Darren Wilson, the officer who shot and killed unarmed teenager Michael Brown. As you might expect, Mike offered a powerful expression of his pain. Watch his four-minute oration below, followed by a cathartic performance of “Run The Jewels.”
We want to encourage all our viewers to continue to work within your communities to connect with each other, talk and share ideas – work toward a just future. Our hearts stay with the family of Michael Brown.
