Killer Mike had a complicated weekend at the Grammys earlier this month. He took home a trio of awards in the rap category. The headliner of the bunch was Best Rap Album which he took home for his record Michael. One of the standout tracks from the album is "SCIENTISTS & ENGINEERS" which sees Mike teaming up with Future, Andre 3000, and Eryn Allen Kane. The song took home the Grammys for both Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance.

Thankfully he was released pretty quicky and was able to get right back to celebrating his big night. During a recent appearance on The View, Mike reflected on the situation.
