    Killer Mike spent his time in police custody meditating and giving thanks to God after being arrested at the Grammy Awards

    The 48-year-old rap star was led away in handcuffs after winning three gongs at the glitzy prizegiving in Los Angeles on Sunday (04.02.24) and was booked on a misdemeanour charge in relation to an altercation inside the Crypto.com Arena venue - and he's now revealed he wasn't angry about the position he found himself in on music's biggest night


    Mike told GQ magazine: "I could have succumbed to anger or evil and talked [badly]. But I'm just grateful. I talked about this album being a return to the religious and moral principles I was raised with.

    "And I just got to say, man, you'll find yourself in a position where it's just you and God. And I took a couple hours, man. I was just by myself, and I was just thankful I took time to thank God and to say, I appreciate the blessings you've given me.

    "I spent time talking. I'm invoking the spirit of my grandmother and my mother and just saying, Look, I've done it. And after a few hours, man, I got out and I went partied and had fun."

    He went on to insist he's glad to have spent three hours in quiet contemplation because the next morning he was given the good news that his child had been approved for a kidney donation.

    Mike added: "I was glad that I had used those three hours to be thankful to God and to be calm and to meditate. Because the very next morning, I got a call that my child, after being on the list for three years, finally got his kidney.

    "And I can just truly tell you that God is real ... I'm grateful. Not only that I won, but I'm grateful that God showed me within 24 hours that there's something more important than even the accolades you've worked for. And that's my family and my child and I'm just thankful. I thank Him."
