Killer Mike has released a statement after his arrest at the Grammys.

The Atlanta artist says an “over-zealous” security guard contributed to the physical altercation that led to his arrest after the rapper won three awards at the Grammys. Mike was escorted in handcuffs by Los Angeles police at Crypto.com Arena after joyous moments for him at the Grammys’ Premiere Ceremony.

“As you can imagine, there was a lot going and there was some confusion around which door my team and I should enter,” Mike said in statement. “We experienced an over-zealous security guard but my team and I have the upmost confidence that I will ultimately be cleared of all wrongdoing.”

A member of the rapper’s team added, “We hit a speed bump in that Mike was detained and charged with a misdemeanour after collecting his awards. On the way into the venue, there was considerable confusion around where to go. He encountered an overzealous security guard and continued moving towards his destination. The situation has been overblown but we are confident that the facts of the case, when laid bare, will show that Mike did not commit the alleged offence and he will be exonerated.”

The 48-year-old beat major stars such as Travis Scott, Nas, Drake and 21 Savage to win “Best Rap Album,” while his track “Scientists & Engineers” earned him two awards for “Best Rap Song” and “Best Rap Performance.”

Killer Mike’s sixth studio LP, “Michael,” was released in June 2023 with 14 songs and additional appearances from Cee-Lo Green, Mozzy, Young Thug, 6LACK, André 3000, Ty Dolla Sign, and more.
