Michael Render, the Atlanta hip-hop artist formerly known as Killer Mike, would now like to be known as Mike Bigga.
The reason for this is, as he explained to AllHipHop.com, "I really feel like Im bigger than what I have been in the past and Ive managed to get legendary status from being a raw rap guy in terms of being able to come out of the shadows of the hardships Ive had."
That's not a sentence any English teacher could support, but the decision to remove the "Killer" from his name probably is.
What other rappers should change their name, you ask?
Suggested Change: 55 Cents
Suggested Change: Not As Young As He Used To Be Jeezy
Reason: 31 is young if you're a tree, not so much if you're a rapper.
Suggested Change: AUpstandingCitizen
Reason: The Smoking Gun's 2008 report showed this guy exaggerated his criminal record.
Suggested Change: Dude who doesn't sing, rap or produce but has tons of songs anyway.
Reason: More accurate
Suggested Change: Ghostface Bigga
Reason: Oh, forget it.
