Atlanta Rappers Killer Mike & 2 Chainz Stand Up For Small Businesses

A city ordinance to curb violence in and around Atlanta nightclubs is getting pushback from prominent business owners Killer Mike and 2 Chainz. The pair of rappers showed up at a council meeting on Monday to urge members to reject the “public nuisance” initiative that Mayor Andre Dickens announced in April designed to stem night time criminal activity.

Killer Mike warned the ordinance “will wipe out” opportunities that will then be “turned over to corporations” despite the fact that “this is one of the only cities where entertainers and athletes have gone on to form a business class,” he said. “Do the right thing and send this back to committee.” Details: complex.com
