Rapper and entrepreneur Killer Mike, born Mike Render, is calling on his fans to help him find the “mentally disturbed white Man” who vandalized his barbershop in Atlanta, Georgia. But, instead of trying to punish the vandal for throwing thousands of dollars in repairs his way, the rapper says he actually wants to make sure the man responsible receives help.
“A mentally disturbed White Man who Calls him self ‘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. 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,” he wrote in the caption beside pictures of the damages.
He also included images of the man in question.
“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. Love and Respect. Thank ‘Kinfolks’ of Edgewood for making sure we know the real deal. Swipe to see the signature he left and his face. No worries #TheSWAGshop will be ok and Happy Kwanzaa to ya’ll!” he added.
Render seems to be handling the damage calmly as he assures everyone that his barbershop will be fine. Despite the pandemic and the new Omicron variant currently plaguing the country, the rapper’s financial investments seem to be doing well. He recently announced that he and T.I. are taking the next steps in their collaboration to bring back Bankhead Seafood, a historic restaurant in northwest Atlanta.
Bankhead Seafood was first opened in 1968 and closed in 2018. According to WSB-TV, the two rappers bought the restaurant including its name, trademark, and recipes in 2019. Both said they decided to make the investment for their community.
“It’s been a part of my life as long as I’ve been on earth,” Render told the local 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.”
