Killer Mike, who introduced presidential candidate Bernie Sanders at an Atlanta rally in November, has posted a full conversation with the Democratic nominee on his YouTube page. The conversation has been broken up into six videos, which can be viewed below, via Mike's YouTube and Facebook pages. The conversation, which took place Mike's barber shop in Atlanta during Sanders' November trip there, is about a variety of subjects, such as: what socialism means to the black community (Bernie: "To be truly free, you need economic rights"), the meaning of social justice, why Sanders got into politics, why people vote against their best interests, why Sanders is—according to Mike—the only politician who wants a smarter electorate, the importance of forming political coalitions (which Sanders responded to by fist bumping Mike), Donald Trump's fascist tendencies, the astonishing percentage of black men in jail, the hypocrisy of marijuana laws, and the importance of voting in the upcoming presidential election. Bernie also joked about growing up "400 years ago." Watch the full conversation between Killer Mike and Bernie Sanders after the jump.
In case you haven't been paying attention to the 2016 Presidential race, please allow rapper Killer Mike to fill you in. Tonight, Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders was introduced by Killer Mike -- mind you, while wearing a Run the Jewels sweatshirt -- at a rally in Atlanta. During his speech, Killer Mike mentioned Dr. Martin Luther King, and said he doesn't want to relive the Reagan era while also referencing his awesome R.A.P. Music song "Untitled." "In my heart of hearts, I truly believe that Senator Bernie Sanders is the right man to lead this country," he said. In addition, he told the crowd to "stay confronting bullshit wherever you turn."

Vince Staples is not only one of the best young rap talents emerging right now but he's also a confident young man with great viewpoints. Lat night Staples made an appearance on "The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore", sitting in on a panel alongside comedians Mark Yard and Gina Yashere. They discussed whether or not they'd vote for an unmarried presidential candidate, and if there's a prejudice against single people. "Most of the people in my generation who want to get married aren't allowed to get married," Staples pointed out. Also, Staples' album Summertime '06 is out June 30 via Blacksmith/Artium/Def Jam.
