Yesterday at a campaign stop in Atlanta, presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders was brought to the stage by political activist and one-half of the hip hop duo Run The Jewels, Killer Mike.
“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 I am very proud tonight to announce the next president of the United States, Sen. Bernie Sanders,” he said with passion.
Now that Killer Mike’s devout endorsement of Senator Sanders has more or less secured the vote of America’s millennials, we wondered which rappers the other candidates might be best suited to accompany on the campaign trail.
Ben Carson/Dr. Dre: Both men are doctors and until 2015 had a pretty glossed-over history of violently attacking people.
Jeb Bush/Lil Romeo: Be it George Sr. or Master P, we only know of these two because their dads were famous last century.
Hillary Clinton/MC Hammer: Both hit it big in the early 90s but had serious issues with bills near the end of the decade.
Ted Cruz/Iggy Azalea: From Canada and Australia respectively, both do a horrible job at pretending they’re not.
George Pataki/Afroman: Both were big in the early 2000s and now use whatever stage will allow them to cling to their last shred of relevance.
Lindsey Graham/U-God: Whether GOP candidate field or Wu-Tang Clan, both have the lowest approval rating in their respective crews.
Donald Trump/Ice Cube: Both have their names engraved on a lot of really embarrassing failures.
