Michael Render aka ‘Killer Mike‘ recently celebrated his 40th year of life at a surprise party surrounded by friends, family and supporters last Monday evening (April 20, 2015).
The talented lyricist has gained a ton of notoriety with his eloquent raps and speeches focusing social activism (click HERE if you missed Mike on CNN) but that didn’t stop him from totally losing it when faced with a crowed fulled with many of his favorite people.
Guests were treated to an open bar (Hennessy & Jack Daniels flowed freely) and included Big Boi and his wife Sherlita Patton, Chamillionaire, Jason Geter, Joe Baker, Kawan Prather, DJ Toomp, Ray Murray, Bonecrusher, BackBone, DJ Cutmaster Swiff, DJ Princess Cut, Mika Means and many many more.

Because we have our own terminology:
“ATL, SWATS [South West Atlanta Too Strong], Old NAT’L, and, of course, ATLien — all invented by Dungeon Family artists. Also, true Atlantans also know that the only ‘T’ found in ‘Atlanna’ comes in a glass with lots of sugar and a lil lemon.”
