The upcoming shows will mark Mike’s first tour since his he won three Grammy Awards thanks to his MICHAEL album, namely for Best Rap Album, Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance for “SCIENTISTS & ENGINEERS” with Future, André 3000 and Eryn Allen Kane.

During his acceptance speech at the awards ceremony, he told the audience: “You cannot tell me that you get too old, you can’t tell me it’s too late, you can’t tell me that dreams don’t come true!”

An audio snippet of the above quote has now been sampled in his new music video for “EXIT 9” with Blxst, which was released as part of the above tour announcement.

Moments after his sweep at the 2024 Grammys, Killer Mike was arrested and escorted off the venue in handcuffs. In mid-February, he opened up about the ordeal, likening it to the treatment his civil rights heroes were subjected to.

During an appearance on The View, he was asked by co-host and former prosecutor Sunny Hostin about the incident, to which he responded: “I think backstage was overcrowded, I think the winners were exuberant, I think security got overzealous and that’s all. It’s water under the bridge for me.

“I’d like to say, all of my heroes have been in handcuffs. Malcolm, Martin, Mandela, Medgar. I walked out with the same dignity and respect I walked in with. I would implore people to take that from it. Don’t dwell on the bad stuff.”

He added: “And the next morning, I spent three hours by myself and the police said we had never got this many phone calls, people are gonna protest, we’re gonna have to move you. They were all panicked and I was just sitting there and I began to invoke thanks.
