Killer Mike has released a new single, Humble Me, watch the track’s video below. It follows his win at the BET Awards for Album of the Year with Michael.

“Technically, I was not supposed to be here,” the Run The Jewels star said in his acceptance speech. “I was put in handcuffs and I was marched out of this building, but I want to tell you, look at god because I’m back baby. I’m back and I’m winning. I want to tell Black people that because of BET I’m back. Not ’cause of no white person calling nobody. A Black man runs this business, a Black company put this show on, and they got my Black ass back in here. Thank y’all.”

He also passionately urged viewers to vote in the upcoming election. “Who we vote for on the big stage is important, but it’s more important you know who your city council person is, who your prosecutor is,” he said. “And if you don’t like the people running, run your Black ass to the polls and run yourself.

Immediately after winning three trophies at the Grammys, including for Best Rap Album, Killer Mike was arrested and booked for misdemeanour battery after an incident with a security guard. Months later, the Los Angeles city attorney’s office declined to file and pursue criminal charges against Killer Mike. However, Ivor Pine, a spokesperson for the city attorney’s office, said that the musician “has successfully completed the Office’s Hearing process, including a community service requirement that was imposed.”

Killer Mike is currently in the midst of a North American tour in support of Michael, his seventh solo LP overall. He’ll stay on the road performing his songs live throughout the summer, including stops at Lollapalooza, Newport Folk Festival, and Montreal International Jazz Festival.
