It is no secret how Run The Jewels’ Killer Mike feels about Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders.
The rapper has been very vocal about their friendship and his support for the Sanders campaign and at Coachella last night (April 16) Sanders rolled through to show RTJ some love right back.
Sanders took to the stage (via video/jumbo screen) to introduce Run The Jewels before their performance, much to the surprise of those in attendance (and those wishing they were).
During his introduction, he said that his relationship with Killer Mike is one of the highlights of his campaign, and that he looks forward to getting to know the group’s other member, El-P at some point in the future.
Signing off with a “Keep up the good work,” Sanders was then faded out as the group took to the stage blaring Queen’s “We Are The Champions.”
Definitely a Coachella highlight to add to the memory books.
