The city of Atlanta is honoring rapper Killer Mike by naming a giant piece of machinery after him. A 400-foot, custom-built boring machine that will dig a key piece of Atlanta's water infrastructure will now be known as Driller Mike. The name was unveiled at a ceremony.
Killer Mike’s first reaction when he heard that the machine might be named in his honor, was, he said with a laugh, “Bull****.”
“I thought it was a joke,” he said. “I literally thought it was just a joke I saw on Twitter.”
As the reality dawned on him, he said he was flattered.
