Killer Mike posted two videos Sunday apologizing for a video interview he did with the National Rifle Association.

The interview was shared at a time meant to "disparage a very noble campaign", he says. "I'm sorry that an interview I did about a minority, black people in this country and gun rights was used as a weapon against you guys. It's possible to do both".

Killer Mike, who campaigned for Sen.

The pro-gun host also said the media would not have covered the students' stories if an armed guard had done their job during the shooting at Parkland, Florida, high school.

"From where I'm standing, it looks like a march to burn the Constitution and rewrite the parts that they don't like in crayon", Noir said.

Recently, Mike sat down with the NRA, and the interview was swiftly taken out of context; from that point forward, narratives formed in which Mike was cast in a negative light, especially among his more left leaning fans.

On Monday, El-P posted a letter on Twitter about Killer Mike's interview, saying he was waiting until the Atlanta rapper made an official statement until he said his piece. Bernie Sanders in the 2016 Democratic presidential primary, indicated afterward that he disagreed with the timing of the NRATV video, which featured black gun-rights supporters.

The blast site was located next to the Interior Ministry and just 200 meters (219 yards) away from the presidential palace. An African Union Mission to Somalia (known as AMISOL) is expected to withdraw its last troops by 2020.

Killer Mike also said he didn't agree with the anti-gun protests or the need for stricter gun laws. And that's so true and it was so sad to hear her acknowledge it, but it's true, and black people know it's true.

"African Americans have only been free for 54 years".

Killer Mike's partner in the duo Run The Jewels, El-P (otherwise known as Jaime Meline), initially commented on the NRA's stance against the marches, tweeting "they didn't want to be known, they wanted to be kids".

"I told my kids on the school walkout, 'I love you, [but] if you walk out that school, walk out my house, '" he says in the interview. "I think that one million black men should go online and just get a year's membership, and see how you like it".
