Killer Mike Takes Bernie Sanders to Lunch, Introduces Him at Fox

Atlanta rapper Killer Mike (one half of Run the Jewels) is clearly a supporter of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders’ presidential run. Not only did Mike (born Michael Render) take Sanders (who is aligned to neither major party but identifies as a socialist) to a meal at the Busy Bee Café during the candidate’s Nov. 23rd stomp in Atlanta, but he gave a speech introducing Sanders during a campaign event at a packed Fox Theatre that night.

Killer Mike is obviously toying with the idea of entering politics himself. He announced a last minute campaign to persuade fans in Georgia’s 55th district to write in his name for state representative in a special election held this past June, but was disqualified due to technicalities. He did tweet soon afterward, however, that “2016 is possible, tho!”
