Killer Mike recently proclaimed Rihanna the "new Tupac."

When asked, by The Guardian, if Kanye West is the greatest rock star in the world, the rapper brought up two other artists.

"Kanye is amazing and may be the greatest rock star in the world but Rihanna is the new Tupac (in feminist form)," Mike told the paper. "And, as much as I love rock, ain't nobody do it like 'Pac. Ri-Ri rules in my book."

Later, Killer Mike was asked about the acclaim he and El-P have received as the duo Run The Jewels. While he enjoys it, there's something he likes much better.

"I cannot lie, as good as it feels to get my deserved props, the best part of reading social media after I meet folks is reading, 'Mike was a nice guy.' I believe being honorable lasts longer than rapping good," he said.
