    Killer Mike posted his six-part interview with presidential candidate Bernie Sanders today (December 15).

    The total interview spans one hour. Killer Mike starts the interview by explaining his background growing up in Atlanta before asking Sanders a question about a specific governmental system.

    “What is socialism and what does it mean to the Black community?" Killer Mike asks Sanders.

    “What it means to me, what it means to the Black community, what it means to the American community is the understanding that when we talk about rights, you have freedom of speech,” Sanders says. “You can go out on the corner and give a speech. You have the constitutional right to do that. But you know what, to be truly free, you need economic rights as well. So you can go out and give a speech, but you don’t have any food in your stomach, you don’t have a house, roof over your head, you don’t have any education, are you really free?"

    Elsewhere in the interview, the two discuss social security, marijuana and gun control.

    God, I love Killer Mike. I was about to come here and criticize rappers (good) rappers supporting a particular politician/group of interests, but this guy is humbling. He gives rap music a good representation (except for all the marijuana craze, but of course even that can be highly subjective).

    I think u need to realize how incredible it would be if Trump was elected. Just the mere idea of f---ing Trump being president. Imagine how incredible those 4 years would be. It would be different than anything we've ever seen in this country. and NO i don't think he would burn the country down. He's smarter than ppl give him credit for, he knows what to say in order to appeal to certain basic human instincts.

    I will qualify this by saying I lean towards the left and think liberals are correct most of the time (not gun control doe)

    Now, Politically I know that Trump is very very different from Bernie. but that's not the point; IMO you have to look at the big picture. I believe they would both be effective - Bernie has proven that he can work with Republicans and is extremely reasonable on almost every issue - and he's been consistent throughout his entire career. Trump on the other hand has good leadership qualities, good negotiation skills and certainly good ability to deal with politicians. I definitely think Trump is a wildcard and he is a mixed bag, but in my opinion Trump is better than any other Republican candidate (with the exception of Rand Paul) and I will be supporting him if it comes down to Hilldog vs Trumpinator. however, if Bernie gets it then im riding with Bernie.

    also Trump isn't a traditional conservative like the rest of his party is, that's also an attractive factor to me.

    Yeah, he's far more right lol. I mean, some of his policy suggestions are borderline fascist (Muslim database). Trump used to be funny and was pretty much the circus clown of this whole race but I don't find him all that humerous anymore. His comments and stances are entirely emotion based and are completely hateful. He's giving racists and just hateful people in this country a voice that they shouldn't have. You told me I need to realize how amazing it would be to have trump as president. I really don't see any bright spot in that happening, inspire me?
