(AllHipHop News) Killer Mike’s performance on the David Letterman show held a particular meaning for the rapper.
Last night, Killer Mike, singer Scar and producer El-P played the “Late Show with David Letterman” and unintentionally represented for his late grandfather with the emotionally charged “Untitled.”
“I watched Letterman with my grand dad Willie Burke Sherwood in my youth. Being on that stage was truly spiritual for me, I know he was watching and smiling,” Killer Mike told AllHipHop.com exclusively. Mike chronicles the life of his grand father on “Willie Burke Sherwood,” another song from R.A.P.
Interestingly enough, Mike came bearing gifts for David Letterman, a 65-year-old legendary television host.
“I gave Dave a pack of Hot Wheels for his son Harry,” Mike said. “He can be heard thanking me at the end.”
Hilariously, Killer Mike told AllHipHop.com that Dave’s late night band leader, Paul Shaffer, had a surprise of his own.
“Paul grabbed my wife’s butt,” Mike said laughing.
Killer Mike will join his Dungeon Family and friend Big Boi on the Shoes For Running tour this spring.
The tour will support both of their critically acclaimed albums, Mike’s R.A.P. and Big Boi’s Vicious Lies And Dangerous Rumors.
