Mike also publicly vouched for Senator Sanders and explained his support.
“In my heart of hearts, I truly believe that Sen. Bernie Sanders is the right man to lead this country,” the hip hop star, activist and Atlanta native said. “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 said. “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.” (Huff Post)
Wu-Tang Clan leader RZA recently considered the idea of a woman running the country as head of state.
“I would be onboard with [a female president] because I understand that the world has yin and yang, and that would be very interesting for our country in the sense of its history,” RZA says. “Seeing Barack Obama become president echoes the struggle for blacks to get out of slavery and then to see that somebody, 100-plus years later, can grow to be in that position. But even after slavery was abolished, women’s rights were still not and they still had to fight for the right to vote. Why not take it another step further and give a female a chance?” (Rolling Stone)
Recently, West Coast rapper Game spoke out on Republican candidate Donald Trump‘s interest in running for president.
“I never liked him. I’m not white, so I wouldn’t be proud of Trump. He also wouldn’t be the first white president. Obama is the first black president, and that was a historic moment. But I don’t think Donald Trump is going to win. If he wins the presidency, we are f—ed.” (Billboard)
