Rapper Killer Mike’s barber shop is giving away 160 free haircuts to students

ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) – Fulton and DeKalb counties kick off their first day of school Monday, and The Swag Shop is making sure their students look fresh for the first day.

The swag store is a place where you can see musicians or athletes getting their hair done, but on Saturday it’s the kids getting their hair cut.

“I can’t go to school looking bad,” said 10th grader George Mathis.

The Witherite Law Group and V-103 have teamed up with rapper Killer Mike’s hair salons to get Fulton and DeKalb County kids ready for their first day of school Monday.

“It’s a boost of self-esteem. You know, feeling your best, looking your best, showing up on the first day of school, making that first impression. It goes a long way,” said Kimm White, general manager of The Swag Shop.

“We try to give very big blessings to families in need,” Big Tigger said. “Amy Witherite [Witherite Law Group owner] goes above and beyond to help give back to the community it serves. I have my good brother Killer Mike who owns the two SWAG shop locations we use. Amy is a supreme benefactress extraordinaire and I am happy to be involved. This is the people’s station and we serve the people. It’s the right thing to do to give back and connect with the people who listen to us and support us.

With the current inflation rate of over 10%, the groups wanted to ensure that parents could afford everything their child needs for school.

“The bottom line is really all that a lot of people can really afford, so if we can make it a little bit easier for families, just something they don’t have to worry about, something that kids don’t have to worry on their first day back to school, I mean, it makes a difference,” said Adewale Odetunde, attorney at Withrite Law Group.

A difference for nearly 200 children, including Mathis. What does he think of his new haircut?

“It’s hard.”
