FULL TRANSCRIPT

 

I would like to say Rest in Peace to Michael Brown... who will never get to see the next phase of his life. I would like to give all thoughts and prayers to the people out there peacefully protesting. I also give thoughts and prayers to the people who could not hold their anger in because riots are only the language of the unheard.

Last night, Run The Jewels performed at The Ready Room in St. Louis, Missouri. By pure coincidence, it was announced just hours before the performance that Darren Wilson -- the police officer who shot and killed an unarmed teenager named Michael Brown in nearby Ferguson -- would not face any criminal charges.

What you see above is an emotional and passionate speech made by Killer Mike, who has been one of the most respected and important people to speak up on the subject in the media. Mike, whose father is a former police officer, lays it on the line.

Where do we go from here?
