Rapper Killer Mike has apologized for giving an interview to the National Rifle Association that was released the same day as the March for Our Lives rally. The interview dropped during the weekend of March Of Our Lives (Mar. 24) and was used as a rhetoric against the Parkland students calling for gun reform.

"We are a gun-owning family", said Killer Mike, a member of the Run the Jewels duo, in his NRATV interview. He shared two videos to Twitter, saying that he had tried to sit "with people I might not always agree with", and that the video was then used to "disparage a very noble campaign that I actually support". "I'm sorry that an interview I did was used as a weapon against you guys".

Ahead of the mass school walkout on March 14 to call for more gun control in America, the grime artist said: 'I told my kids on the school walkout, I love you, if you walk out of that school, walkout my house.

Killer Mike also said he didn't agree with the anti-gun protests or the need for stricter gun laws.

Mike's statements have drawn a strong backlash from fans and others who saw it as harmful to causes like the fight against police brutality.

The rapper, for his part, has stood by both his positions and his decision to speak with the NRA.

Now, the NY rapper has come to Killer Mike's side and revealed why he waited to make a statement.

The bulk of the NRA's spend was focused on social media platforms in the weeks after the incident, namely Facebook where it increased investment by more than seven-fold. And they've earned being heard in one of the hardest ways possible. "She's not serving the people of the NRA, because the people that are joining the NRA, 99.9% of them are incredible people that just want to be safe, responsible gun owners". It's owed to them and many others.

During the interview, Killer Mike argued that the mainstream progressive movement doesn't always support issues that impact black communities specifically. And that conversation is about African American gun ownership.African Americans have only been free for 54 years.

But Noir took the students to task in their quest to limit, if not take away entirely our God-given right to defend ourselves - in effect, using their First Amendment rights to attack the Second Amendment.

"I don't drop friends from my life just because I disagree with them or how they went about getting a message out, even when it goes wrong", El-P continued in a second note.
