Killer Mike Details Appearance On "Late Show With David Letterman"

Killer Mike calls himself "one lucky bastard" after getting the opportunity to appear on David Letterman's show.

Despite the significant critical acclaim that Killer Mike's R.A.P. Music garnered, it may have been a surprise to many to see the rapper appear to perform on "Late Show with David Letterman."

In a recent interview with SOHH, Mike Bigga spoke on the appearance. "[David Letterman's] booker is a wonderful woman, she loves R.A.P. Music and 'Untitled' was her favorite record," he explained. "And I'm the lucky bastard that made it. It's that simple. I appreciated her for booking me and I appreciate Dave for giving me the okay."

Mike revealed that he had a personal connection to the "Late Show," which made the appearance all the more special. "It was actually pretty dope. [The 'Late Show'] was a lot of pressure because that's what I used to watch with my grandpa. God rest the dead, I know he was somewhere watching. I was really nervous."

The Atlanta rapper added that his late-night television plans are far from over. "I'm going to be really nervous [when the day comes and] I do Leno because I want to see his cars [laughs]... If you come see me on a show, you're going to see a little bit of everything. You're going to see some rapping, talking and some funny shit. I would love to do Kimmel, Fallon, Leno, Letterman again and daily within the same blocks. We're gonna keep pushing and making dope records and hopefully you guys will keep supporting and giving me the opportunity."

Mike was joined by El-P and Scar to perform "Untitled." Watch the performance below:
