Killer Mike Arrested at 2024 Grammy Awards


The rapper had won three Grammys less than two hours before being taken away in handcuffs at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles

Killer Mike was arrested at the 66th Grammy Awards at Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles Sunday afternoon, shortly after winning three of the four rap categories in the pre-show telecast about two hours earlier.

Video captured by The Hollywood Reporter’s Chris Gardner showed Mike, whose real name is Michael Render, being taken away in handcuffs. Gardner reported that an official said the arrest was related to an unspecified misdemeanor that didn’t have to do with any happenings during the Grammys on Sunday. A rep for Los Angeles Police Department HQ told Rolling Stone they didn’t have information to provide at press time.

The arrest came shortly after Mike, whose real name is Michael Render, had gone to the press area fielding questions about his win — elated to have been recognized after more than 20 years into his hip-hop career. “It feels absolutely grand,” Render said. “If it feels like some people are reaching the finish line first, don’t worry. Just keep running your race. The only thing stopping you is your imagination. It’s our responsibility to be grand in every action.”

Today’s Grammys marked the first time Render had won a Grammy for his solo work. His first Grammy win came more than two decades ago for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group alongside Outkast for “The Whole World.” Prior to 2024, he was last nominated in 2018 for Best Rap Song for “Chase Me,” the Run the Jewels collaboration with Danger Mouse and Big Boi.
