Rapper Killer Mike talks new music, Black Lives Matter and US politics

Culture Correspondent

The rap musician and activist Killer Mike has taken to the stage in London, for a series of shows – his first in the UK for more than a decade.

The Grammy award winning star, whose real name is Michael Render, rose to fame as part of the group, Run the Jewels. But as well as a burgeoning solo career, he’s made a name as a political activist too – a powerful advocate during the Black Lives Matter movement and for left wing senator Bernie Sanders.
