Michael Render

Michael  Render The son of a police officer, Michael Render, aka “Killer Mike” for his ability to “kill the mic” during his shows, is an Atlanta-based hip hop artist and bold social activist. By focusing on issues such as the for-profit prison system, police brutality, and same-sex marriage he thoughtfully shines a light on how all Americans suffer when injustice prevails. In 2011, he realized a lifelong dream of opening a barbershop in Atlanta with the goal of opening more shops as a way to “lift up [Black] men in the community who are out of work and to help move them towards sustainable, lifelong careers.”
