The Run The Jewels rapper shared the news on Tuesday (December 28), saying “A mentally disturbed White Man who Calls himself “Druce Wayne” did this to our Shop downtown. He lives in the delusion he is Kurt Cobain and somehow i am involved in a conspiracy to keep him silenced.”
Killer Mike went on to say that the damage done to his shop can be mended, but “this man’s mind is terribly broken”. He went on to urge his followers from Oklahoma to reach out if they know the vandal “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 concluded.
The act marks the second time in recent history that one of Killer Mike’s businesses has suffered damages. In February, his SWAG Shop barbershop in South Fulton, Georgia had its windows blown out in a shooting near the store.
According to reports, no one was hurt in the incident, and the barbershop – which at the time was gearing up to reopen after the coronavirus pandemic forced its closure – was empty at the time of the incident.
