Killer Mike’s recent Grammy win for Best Rap Album elicited cheers from his dedicated fans and the veteran MC himself, but Twitch streamer Kai Cenat had a different take on the matter.

Reacting to Michael’s victory, Cenat unleashed a profanity-laced rant, expressing apparent disbelief that it triumphed over albums by Drake, 21 Savage (“Her Loss”), Travis Scott (“Utopia”), and Metro Boomin (“Heroes & Villains”). Notably, Nas’ “King’s Disease III” was also nominated but went unmentioned by Cenat.

After a brief congratulatory prologue where he admitted not knowing who Killer Mike was, Cenat shouted, “Who the heck decided this winner?! ‘Her Loss’? ‘Utopia’? Metro Boomin? My man!”

One viewer labeled Cenat a “clown” for his unfamiliarity with Killer Mike, who gained recognition in the early 2000s after being discovered by Big Boi from OutKast. The Atlanta legend once highlighted signing Mike as one of his “greatest accomplishments outside of being in OutKast.”

Commenters criticized Cenat’s apparent disrespect, with one stating, “The Killer Mike disrespect is so unwarranted considering everything that dude has done for rap.”

Another Instagram user urged Cenat and others to “go do y’all homework.”

Killer Mike’s impact on the rap scene includes collaborations on hit singles like OutKast’s “The Whole World,” Purple Ribbon All-Stars’ “Kryptonite (I’m On It),” Bone Crusher’s “Never Scared,” and his solo track “A.D.I.D.A.S.”

In 2013, he joined forces with El-P to form the duo Run The Jewels, elevating both artists to new heights of success.

Kai Cenat’s recent controversies include a shift from prank videos and gaming to featuring celebrity guests, particularly rappers, on his streams. Rappers like Drake, Nicki Minaj, 21 Savage, Lil Uzi Vert, Offset, and Lil Yachty have made appearances on his platform. Cenat’s access to top-tier rappers sparked discussions within the Hip Hop community, with veteran journalist Elliott Wilson expressing criticism, which he later apologized for, acknowledging Cenat’s contributions to the industry.
