Killer Mike Hits the Road: 2024’s Must-See Tour

Grammy laureate Killer Mike is setting stages ablaze across North America with his much-anticipated Down By Law – Summer 2024 Tour. Unveiling dates spanning the spring zephyrs of May to the crisp fall of October, this tour promises a journey through the rapper’s impressive discography. Beginning May 4 in Memphis, the tour will navigate through the heart of cities like Washington D.C., Atlanta, Toronto, and New York, making a special stop at the Ogden Twilight series in Ogden, Utah, before drawing the curtain in Los Angeles on October 15. At each stop, Killer Mike will be accompanied by the harmonious force of his choir, the Midnight Revival.

A Visual Voyage: “Exit 9”

In tandem with his tour announcement, Killer Mike dropped a music video for “Exit 9” from his latest album, Michael.

Adding a touch of civic pride, Atlanta Mayor Andre Dickens makes a cameo, further grounding the video in the city’s vibrant culture and community. The music video for “Exit 9” fittingly concludes with his heartfelt Grammy acceptance speech, a moment of recognition and reflection for the artist. Watch below.

Grammy Glory and Beyond

Michael isn’t just another notch in Killer Mike’s discography; it’s a triumphant return after an 11-year hiatus, sweeping three Grammy Awards, including Best Rap Album. The track “Scientists & Engineers” snagged Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance, cementing Killer Mike’s indelible mark on the genre.
