We may more commonly know Michael Render, AKA Killer Mike, as one half of hip-hop duo Run The Jewels, or as the rapper featured on countless classic tracks—like Outkast’s “Whole World,” Jay Z’s “Poppin’ Tags,” Bone Crusher’s “Never Scared,” and Purple Ribbon All-Stars’ “Kryptonite” but one fact about the accomplished artist that may have eluded most of us these past years is that he’s the proud owner of a barbershop in his hometown of Atlanta.
It’s not just any old barbershop either; Killer Mike’s Graffiti’s SWAG Shop (SWAG = Shave, Wash, And Groom) is a one-of-a-kind establishment where The ATL community can come get world class service. However, what sets The SWAG Shop apart from the traditional barbershop is that it also doubles as a gathering place for the community —a place that promotes togetherness and looks to have a positive influence on those in need. Our friends at Bevel recently paid Killer Mike and his barbershop a visit to get the inside scoop on how the place came to be. Check out the full story here.
