Killer Mike Speech

He started while expressing his thankfulness and gratitude to everyone who has helped him in this journey. He said. “For all the people out there that think you get too old to rap, bullshit. I don’t give a damn if you’re 78 rapping about how many gals you got in the nursing home, make sure we keep hip-hop alive.”

Mike continued saying, “For 20 years I’ve been saying, ‘I can do it. I can do it. I can do it.’ And in [my] 20th year of hip-hop, here I am doing it. … I remember being in the fourth grade, they said it wouldn’t last two years. I remember being in eighth grade and they said it wasn’t a real art form. I remember being in 12th grade and my homeroom teacher telling me it would never happen, and here we are. The only thing that limits you is you.”

Killer Mike also talked about his past, sharing the lessons he learned and the decisions that he regretted taking. He said “At 20 years old, I thought it was cool to be a drug dealer. At 40 years old, I started to live with regrets. At 45, I started to rap about it, at 48 years old I stand here a man with empathy and sympathy for the things I’ve done.”

While concluding his speech, Mike said something powerful that the audiences will always keep in their minds “The only thing that limits you is you.”
