Bun B Is Riding For Bernie Sanders In The Race To The Next Presidency

Bun B Is Riding For Bernie Sanders In The Race To The Next Presidency

It's no secret now that Bernie Sanders is quietly rallying hip-hop's heavyweights in his campaign to conquer the collective consciousness of the nation. We've already seen and heard of Killer Mike's unflinching support of the presidential hopeful, as well as Scarface and Lil B. But today, during an appearance on the debut episode of the Hip Hop For Bernie Sanders podcast, yet another pillar of southern hip-hop claimed his allegiance to and endorsed The Bern, namely, the one and only, Bun B.

Speaking with the show's host Matt Sonzala and Texan emcee on-the-rise Fat Tony, the hip-hop scholar, astute as ever, lays out the importance of choosing sides early on in the race, particularly for those who happen to be in favor of mitigating corporate influence in politics, something that is more than just a crusade for Sanders, with over one million individual, public donors so far in his fundraising efforts. You can hear Bun B, Fat Tony and Matt Sonzola discussing the Bernie Sanders campaign and all that it stands for below, just be sure to keep your ear to the ground, as Bun is just the latest of what we're hoping to be many within the community that help spread the gospel of Bernie.
