Rapper and social justice activist Killer Mike was forced to delay the planned reopening of his Atlanta barbershop after it was hit by stray bullets over the weekend.
The streets of Atlanta have been turned into a war zone by out-of-towners fleeing their locked down blue states. Gang bangers are drawn to the area by the wide open atmosphere and packed nightclubs and restaurants.
The "Run The Jewels" rap star had been preparing to welcome customers back to his SWAG barbershop, but he had to rethink his plans after the property was riddled with bullets following a nearby shootout between a group of men.
The store has since had its windows boarded up and the broken glass cleared away until they can be repaired. Killer Mike, real name Michael Render, took to Instagram to share his outrage over the incident.
"It was not a personal attack but it was black men who cud not shoot for s**t shooting at one another," he wrote.
Mike went on to admit he is more frustrated about the senseless violence that continues to take place on the streets of his native city. He used his post to send a message to those involved.
"Please consider what would have happened if one of y'all actually hit one another," he continued. "The jail, the lawyer fees, the funeral cost and two black families loss. I'm glad y'all cud not hit the side of a barn with a shot gun cuz this am y'all all are alive [sic]."
He also expressed his thanks to local community members and police for helping with the clean up effort, and promised to reopen the SWAG Shop as soon as possible.
Authorities have yet to identify any suspects in the shooting, according to TMZ.
