Killer Mike couldn’t contain his emotions after it was revealed that no charges would be brought against Officer Darren Wilson.

Just hours after it was revealed that no charges would be brought against Wilson for shooting unarmed black teenager Mike Brown, Killer Mike vented his frustration onstage at the Ready Room in St. Louis.

Killer Mike performed with the group, Run the Jewels, at the venue, which is only a few miles from Ferguson. During his rant Killer Mike broke down in tears as he expressed his outrage.

“No matter how much we do it, no matter how much we get shit together, shit comes along that kicks you on your ass and you don’t feel like a champion, so tonight I got kicked on my ass when I listened to that prosecutor,” Killer Mike said. “I gotta tell ‘em: You motherfu**ers got me today. You kicked me on my ass because I have a 20-year-old son and I have 12-year-old son and I’m so afraid for them.”

Mike continued, “You motherfu**ers will not own tomorrow. We will not live in your fear, we will not accept your pain, we’re not going to keep playing that race card ’cause we know you don’t value my skin and we know you do value his [points to El-P], but you know what, we’re friends, and nothing is gonna devalue that.”

Mike ended with,”It is not about race, it is not about class, it is not about color, it is about what they killed him for. It is about poverty, it is about greed, and it is about a war machine.”

“It is us against the motherfu**ing machine!” Mike said before performing Run the Jewels. Watch his performance below.
