Atlanta, GA – Several members of the Atlanta community have rallied around Killer Mike and his wife after their SWAG barbershop was defaced with spray paint by a known conspiracy theorist identified as “Druce Wayne.” Two days after the crime took place, SWAG had a fresh coat of red paint and looked as good as it did prior to the graffiti — if not better.
On Wednesday (December 29), the Run The Jewels spitter shared a photo of the fixed up storefront along with some of the people who helped repair the damage.
“God is good,” he wrote in the caption. “Me and Shay Wanna say Thank U @theswagshopedgewood @symphonythompson @kodakrome3x5 @gabtayouthbuild.”
Killer Mike was admittedly irate after he discovered what had been done to his shop but at the same time, he showed compassion for the man.
“A mentally disturbed White Man who Calls himself ‘Druce Wayne’ did this to our Shop downtown,” Mike wrote. “He lives in the delusion he is Kurt Cobain and somehow i am involved in a conspiracy to keep him silenced. I am angry and beyond upset. With that said I know I can fix this physical damage BUT this man’s mind is terribly broken.
“If u are from OKC and know his family or friends please DM so u can get him some help. I will for sure make sure we get this fixed and I encourage all to check on your mentally ill loved ones because the world my not be as understanding as me.”
Killer Mike has other plans for his beloved community. On December 10, Killer Mike and fellow ATLien T.I. announced they’re moving forward with their plans to resurrect Bankhead Seafood, a popular restaurant in northwest Atlanta. Originally founded in 1968, it was forced to close its doors in 2018.
“It’s been a part of my life as long as I’ve been on earth,” Killer Mike said to a local news outlet. “If you’re writing a show or a book about Michael Render and his family, [Bankhead Seafood] would definitely be one of the characters.
