Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders made an appearance in Indio, California this weekend to introduce Run The Jewels at Coachella. Sanders recorded a special video message that preceded the duo’s performance on Saturday. His appearance ahead of their set follows months of endorsements from Killer Mike, who might be the most vocal and visible of Sanders’ high profile supporters.
“One of the highlights of running for President over this past year has been getting to know Killer Mike,” Sanders said in the video. “His depth of passion, his knowledge and commitment to community is an inspiration to me, and I value his friendship immensely.”
“El-P: Keep up the great work and let’s get to know each other better in the months to come,” Sanders continued. “By the way, I thought the least I could do for both of you was to help you out by bringing a few young people together. So without further ado, I’d like to introduce my friends Run The Jewels.”
