Killer Mike Talks Expanding His Barbershop Business
by Mike Winslow News.
(AllHipHop News) Rapper Killer Mike is expanding his barbershop business by opening another location in Georgia.
The Run The Jewels star opened up his Shave, Wash, and Groom (SWAG) Shop in Atlanta in 2011, and his new shop will be located at the Philips Arena, where the Atlanta Hawks basketball team play.
The venue is currently undergoing renovations and the rapper’s barbershop will be part of the new setup.
“I’m very happy that the front porch of the Hawks is going to be host to a SWAG Shop,” a statement from the rapper reads. “It really is like a dream coming true because now kids are going to be coming down early just to hang out in my shop, buy a T-shirt, get a haircut and watch the game.”
In addition to Killer Mike’s barbershop, country star Zac Brown is also opening a second restaurant in the arena.
Zac Brown’s Southern Ground will feature a live music stage and southern food.
