    Rapper Killer Mike, who was detained by the LAPD at the Grammys last week and escorted away from the Crypto.com arena in handcuffs, discussed the incident on The View on Monday morning. Killer Mike, whose real name is Michael Render, had just been onstage at the nearby Peacock Theater—he earned three awards that evening, for Best Rap Song, Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Album—before being arrested in connection to what an LAPD spokesperson described to The Daily Beast as a “physical altercation.”

    “Obviously, it’s an ongoing legal matter, so I don’t know how much you can say about it, but can you just give us some sort of description?” co-host Sunny Hostin prompted Render.

    “I think the backstage was overcrowded, I think the winners were exuberant and I think that security got a little overzealous,” Render, who won his accolades for his 2023 album Michael, replied. “You know, it’s water under the bridge for me.”
