Outspoken Atlanta rapper Killer Mike lent his support to the Occupy Atlanta movement this weekend when he addressed the group at Woodruff Park downtown.
Mike was at Woodruff on Saturday as part of Atlanta Hip Hop Day, which featured one of hip hop’s founding fathers, Afrika Bambaataa, and others. There was some confusion about whether Atlanta Hip Hop Day had been granted a permit to be in Woodruff and after some tense moments and Mike speaking to Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, Mike addressed the crowd.
While Mayor Reed told Occupy Atlanta on October 13 they had 5 days to clear out of Woodruff, that order has not been carried out yet.
However, the police presence surrounding the park has increased significantly, giving the perception that police may clear out the park at any moment.
