Swag Shop: Killer Mike Breaks Down The Barbershop Business

Swag Shop: Step Into Killer Mike's Barber Shop

Suppose we all know that Killer Mike is a man of many hats. A new Noisey mini-doc takes into the fruits of a childhood dream for the southern slur specialist; owning and running a franchise of successful barber shops. The piece opens with Mike picking out some prime real estate in New Orleans to expand his ATL-centric Swag Shop operation before delving into the communal and cultural good that a barbershop can facilitate and how now, more than ever, a model is needed to show young black men how to invest in themselves and their community. Through it all, Mike's passion and commitment to the game shines through.
