NEWSFLASH!!! Killer Mike is still ‘triggering’ people with his brilliant brain and has sparked a huge debate over public school vs. private schools.
Mike stopped by Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club yesterday (Jan 31) to promote his new Netflix series “Trigger Warning” and manage to strike a nerve with DJ Envy, one of the hosts of the popular morning show.
Throughout the interview, the artist touched on a few of the socio-political topics addressed in his new show, however when Mike began to share his thoughts on the educational system, he and Envy engaged in a verbal spar that lasted over 20 minutes!
Details + video below…
In a recent interview with the Breakfast Club, the activist/rapper expressed how passionately he feels about sending black children to public schools versus private schools and DJ Envy strongly disagreed.
For nearly 25 minutes, Envy and Killer Mike debated the pros and cons of public vs. private schooling.

The debate was highlighted by Killer Mike’s advocacy of Historically Black Colleges and Universities, a system of schools that both Killer Mike and Envy attended. As well as being capped off by Mike pleading to African Americans to take stock in things that are Black.
Stop thinking what you produce isn’t good enough.
Who you are is good enough to be who we are supposed to become. But you have to have that faith and belief in yourself.

Great Conversation with my bro @killermike… Some of you agree with me… Some of you don’t and I honestly don’t care… What I care about is our community… The fact that most the people I speak to don’t know anything about business, starting a business or running a business… I care about most of the areas that are expensive and over priced.. We use to live… Like Downtown Brooklyn, Harlem, Jersey City, And Jamaica Queens… If my son wants to be barber that’s fine… I’m a teach him how to own a barber shop… If my son wants to be a garbage man… That’s fine… I wanna teach him how to own garbage trucks.. We are just different… People tell me all day they don’t have money to start… And they have the newest kicks, flyest clothes, a dope car, $800 belt, a fresh weave or on there way to SuperBowl this weekend… I’m going to Atlanta this weekend to DJ AND look at properties… See the difference my mind frame is a lil different… Invest in yourself, invest in your kids, invest in your future…
