Run the Jewels' Killer Mike at USF in Tampa: 'Pick up a sign, yell and scream'

Zack Wittman



Rapper Killer Mike, half of the acclaimeed duo Run the Jewels, stopped by the University of South Florida in Tampa on Wednesday for a lecture as part of the school's Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Commemorative Week.

He spoke about the importance of mentoring, of trying to understand other races, and of living up to King's legacy.

"I don't accept that 'dream' they sell you on Martin Luther King," he said. "He was a radical … Don't say you want to be like Dr. King unless you really want to be like Dr. King."
