Killer Mike was raised with six younger sisters in a middle class family by his father, a lab technician, and his mother, a performer. As a nine-year-old boy, he heard “Rock Box” by Run DMC, and since that time he fell in love with music and knew what he would do in his life. He began composing from an early age, and then studied Arts at Morehouse College, where he met people from the music and entertainment industries.

Killer Mike’s debut release was the 2003 album entitled “Monster”, but before that, he was featured in a number of songs with such artists as Outkast and Jay-Z. In the same year, for the single “The Whole World” from Outkast’s first compilation album, he received with Outkast a Grammy Award in the category Best Rap Performance By a Duo or Group. His next release was a mixtape, entitled “Home Alone Wit`Dat Crank” in 2004, which was followed with a second mixtape, entitled “Killer” in 2006. The same year, Mike released his second full length album, entitled “I Pledge Allegiance To The Grind”, but failed to chart. Nevertheless, Mike continued on, and two years later released another mixtape, entitled “Ghetto Extraordinary”, which was followed by his third studio album “I Pledge Aliagence To Grind II”, adding further to his net worth and popularity as well . Since then, his name in the entertainment industry became quite popular, and on account of that, he released the compilation album “Underground Atlanta” in 2009, and another mixtape as a compilation, “Anger & Ambition: The Best of Killer Mike” the same year.

To speak further of his successful career as a musician, Killer Mike has released two more solo albums “PL3DGE” (2011), and “R.A.P Music” (2012), after which he joined with rapper El-P (Jaime Meline), with whom he started the rap duo Run Jewels. His net worth became bigger, as the two have released three albums so far, and they continue to make music. Their first album was released in 2013, entitled “Run Jewels”, and was made available for free download from the internet stores. The album received positive critiques, which encouraged Mike and El-P to continue to produce music, their second album, “Run Jewels 2” was released in 2014, it certainly added to Mike’s net worth, as it sold more than 12,000 copies in the first week. Their last release is the third album, released early this year, “Run Jewels 3” (2016), which was also well received with the public.

Killer Mike has also been recognized as an actor, which also added to his net worth. Besides the already mentioned titles, he was also a part of the film “20 Funerals” (2004).

When it comes to Killer Mike’s personal life, he is married to Shana Render, but otherwise is a very private person.
