Why Was Killer Mike Arrested At The Grammy's

At the 66th Annual Grammy Award in Los Angeles on Sunday (Feb. 4) night Killer Mike racked up three Grammy Awards. Mike’s wins were for best rap performance for “Scientists & Engineers,” which also took home best rap song. The single features Andre 3000, Future and Eryn Allen Kane.

Atlanta, it’s a sweep!” Unfortunately this part of the awards ceremony was not televised. The 48-year-old rapper accepted his Grammy award wins telling the audience “You cannot tell me you get too old. You cannot tell me it’s too late.”
