In November 2015 one-half of Run The Jewels, Killer Mike, gave his unbridled support Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders with an impassioned speech at the latter’s rally in Atlanta. Th two actually spent the day together, with Mike treating Sanders to some of his favorite meals and holding a lengthy conversation with him at The Swag Shop on Edgewood Avenue.
Their talk has now been released by Mike himself. In a six-part series, Mike and Sanders touch on a variety of topics: health care, the true meaning of economic freedom, social justice, health care, the actual threat of a misogynistic, bigoted and quasi-incestuous businessman quite possibly becoming the President of the United States, and more. It provides a bit of insight for those who are still unaware of Sanders’ policies, and somewhat shows why Mike adds to the list of growing support for the Brooklyn candidate.
