Killer Mike Hosting Residency At New York’s Blue Note Jazz Club

After sweeping the Grammy Awards, rapper Killer Mike is ready for an intimate lineup of shows at New York City’s famed Blue Note Jazz Club.

It was an eventful night at the Grammys for Mike as he won big during the Grammys pre-telecast before heading to jail after being arrested for misdemeanor battery following a scuffle with a security guard. Video of rapper/activist being escorted out of the venue in handcuffs went viral ahead of the televised award show.

When appearing on “The View” following the Grammys, Killer Mike shared how “overwhelmed” he was that night.

“Backstage was overcrowded, the winners were exuberant and I think security got a little overzealous. It’s water under the bridge for me,” he said.

“All of my heroes have been in handcuffs — [Malcolm X, Martin Luther King Jr., Nelson Mandela, Medgar Evers]. I walked out with the same dignity and respect that I walked in with, and I would implore people to just take that from it. Don’t dwell on the bad stuff.”

Killer Mike’s Blue Note residency comes in part of several intimate shows the renowned venue will host in the coming months from jazz, hip-hop, and R&B artists including Robert Glasper, Bilal, Masego, BJ the Chicago Kid, Terrace Martin, and Wynton Marsalis with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra.
