Atlanta-based rapper (and personal favorite of mine) Killer Mike, has surpisingly emerged as one of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders most outspoken supporters in the South.
The rapper spoke of his political awakening at a Sanders event last month and he also sat down with the Democratic candidate at the SWAG Shop in Atlanta for an hourlong interview, which was recently releasd.
Mike and Sanders chat about the meaning of democratic socialism, Sanders’ political strategy, gun control, and even address Donald Trump’s racism:
“I played Mexico City yesterday…and I yelled, ‘F*ck Trump!’ and basically 20,000 Mexican citizens repeated it,” Killer Mike told Sanders. “I feel like that in my heart. I’d even tell that to Jesus Christ.”
“How dangerous is it that a man just got beat up at his political rally?” he went on, referencing the Black Lives Matter activist who was beaten at a Trump event last month.
Watch the full interview (broken into six parts) below…
