Killer Mike Speaks About Race At MIT

Killer Mike stirred audiences with his passionate endorsement of Bernie Sanders this week in Atlanta.

‘I truly believe that Senator Bernie Sanders is the right man to lead this country,’ he told the audience.

The rapper took the presidential hopeful for a ride around Atlanta, where they talked voting rights, health care, education and ending the war on drugs.

‘I have said in many a rap, I don’t trust the church or the government, a Democrat, Republican, a pope, a bishop or those other men,” Killer Mike continued, ‘But after spending five hours tonight, after spending five hours with someone who has spent the last 50 years radically fighting for your rights and mine, I can tell you that am very proud tonight to announce the next president of the United States, Sen. Bernie Sanders.’

The rapper turned political activist may not have that many outward similarities with the Senator from Vermont, but when it comes to having a unified vision for what America should look like, the men see eye to eye. That’s what brotherly love is all about.

Here are some other moments from their bromantic day in Atlanta:
