New Mural Paying Homage To Killer Mike Goes Up In Atlanta's Old 4th Ward
Killer Mike has been an advocate for Black entrepreneurship and the Black dollar for years. From his SWAG Shop barbershops to his most recent venture of creating Black-owned online bank, Greenwood, the activist and musician is always putting on for his city.
To celebrate Killer Mike, artist Fabian Williams aka Occasional Superstar, recently painted a brand new mural in Atlanta’s Old Fourth Ward.
“I have been wanting something original from Fabian for some time now, so to have him do one of me is an honor,” Killer Mike said in the video. “It’s a beautiful piece that reflects my approach to life.”
If you aren’t familiar with the neighborhood, it is one of Atlanta’s historically Black areas and is just around the corner from Killer Mike’s barbershop.
Williams was honored, although a little nervous, to present the Atlanta legend with the mural. The entire thing was captured on film below.
The mural can be found at: 488 Edgewood Ave, SE in Atlanta.
