Killer Mike took to his Youtube channel to share his conversation with former Olympian and American Civil Rights Leader Tommie Smith, who made history by winning the 200m sprint in under 20 seconds. Removing his PUMA Suedes, he stepped onto the medal podium in black socks to represent poverty and slavery, and raised his fist.

On January 15th, 2016, in a meeting facilitated by Puma and Frank Da Butcher at The SWAG Shop in Atlanta, GA, Killer Mike and Tommie Smith sat down to talk about the mythology of young black males, civil rights - while also giving Mike the opportunity to honor one of his heroes.

This is the second conversation in Killer Mike's six-part series.
