mike killerhas a heck of a 47th birthday, celebrating another spin around the sun, and the fact that he’s getting paid to shine a light on something he loves…the growth of cannabis culture in America.
Mike joined us Wednesday on “TMZ Live” to talk about his 4-part Vice TV docuseries, “Tumbleweeds With Killer Mike” — but before we talk about it, he told us how he toasted his birthday. You gotta see the clip, but let’s just say it involves a lot of marijuana and his wife Shay Bigga. It’s hilarious.
As for Mike’s new show…”Tumbleweeds” shows the rapper and activist traveling across the country, showing the economic impact of Mary Jane in cities where it has been legalized.
He says one of his goals is to normalize the cannabis industry by showing the business opportunities it brings and its positive effects on marginalized communities … where people have been disproportionately imprisoned for marijuana.
The series debuts tonight on Vice, and you can tell Mike is excited about its potential to change America’s perspective on legalization.
BTW…his band, Run The Jewels, will be back at Coachella for the 2nd weekend, and it looks like he and LP are getting a lineup upgrade.
Basically, Killer Mike has the best birthday ever!!!
