Noir says Mike can talk about "how guns can solve the problems society faces". The timing of the video was particularly goading, circulating, as it did, while hundreds of thousands of students marched to demand more stringent gun-control laws.

Killer Mike has since apologised, saying, "Sorry my interview about "black gun owners" was used in the wrong way but, hey it's people having far worse days". The NRA has a history of racist antics which include not defending Philando Castile after he was killed by a cop although he legally owned the gun he was carrying. The game, he suggests, is too rigged.

"Guys, I'm sorry", he said. Mike added that his appearance was meant to focus on gun ownership by black Americans.

The NRATV video came as a rebuttal to the March for Our Lives, a star-studded gun-control rally held Saturday that drew a crowd of about 200,000 at the main event in Washington, D.C., according to Digital Design & Imaging Service for CBS News. He has a rubbery, blustery voice-melodious and playful, but trenchant.

In the final paragraph he concludes, "to any organization that opposes...or seeks to discredit these people trying desperately to change their world, make no mistake: we aren't on the same 'side'". While he initially stood by his stance, the continued backlash prompted Mike to issue an apology.

This was the scene on Pennsylvania Avenue at around 9am on Saturday morning as more and more protesters arrived with signs. "Party's over. Let's get busy scrubbing Obama's mocacchino stain off of America!"

Turns out Killer Mike's interview with NRA TV wasn't a winning idea. In a controversial interview, the rapper and social activist made statements disparaging the protests following the Parkland shootings. "You're a lackey of the progressive movement, because you've never disagreed with the people who tell you what to do", he said. "My point remains 'Black People Own and train with ya fire arm becuz i don't trust this country'".

Others were more critical of the fact that he chose to air his views through the NRA. I drive u nuts but i promise u I love ya brother & will always do what's right. And after Sanders lost the Democratic primary, he discouraged liberal voters from supporting Hillary Clinton, telling fans that "If you're voting for Trump or Hillary Clinton, you're voting for the same thing".
