Killer Mike Announces 2024 Tour Dates


Killer Mike has announced North American tour dates behind his latest solo album, Michael. The rapper’s Down by Law Tour kicks off May 4 in Memphis and winds through Washington D.C., Atlanta, Toronto, New York, Chicago, Denver, and additional cities, before closing out in Los Angeles on October 15. Killer Mike will be joined by his choir the Midnight Revival throughout the trek. Check out Killer Mike’s full itinerary, as well as a new music video for the Michael cut “Exit 9,” featuring Blxst, below.

The Shane Smith–directed visual for “Exit 9” features Atlanta landmarks like the Cascade roller rink and the Blue Flame Lounge gentleman’s club, as well as a cameo from Atlanta Mayor Andre Dickens.

Michael, which came out last June, marked Killer Mike’s first solo full-length in 11 years. The album earned him three Grammy Awards at this year’s ceremony; the Atlanta rapper won Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance for the Michael track “Scientists & Engineers,” while the LP took home Best Rap Album. The “Exit 9” clip concludes with audio from Killer Mike’s Best Rap Album Grammy acceptance speech.

Following Killer Mike’s Grammys sweep, he was arrested at Arena and booked for misdemeanor battery. A security guard allegedly called for a citizen’s arrest, claiming Mike injured her while trying to go through the wrong entrance inside the venue. “As you can imagine, there was a lot going and there was some confusion around which door my team and I should enter,” Killer Mike later explained. “We experienced an over-zealous security guard but my team and I have the upmost confidence that I will ultimately be cleared of all wrongdoing.”

Killer Mike recently performed “Exit 9” on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, backed by the Midnight Revival and DJ Trackstar.
