Watch Killer Mike's 6-part interview with Bernie Sanders in Atlanta


Atlanta-based rapper Killer Mike, who calls himself a "gangsta rap suburban father,” has emerged as one of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders most outspoken supporters in the South.

The rapper, who spoke of his political awakening at a Sanders event last month, sat down at the SWAG Shop in Atlanta for an hourlong interview with the Democratic candidate. They chat about the meaning of democratic socialism, Sanders' political strategy and gun control - "I'm from the South," Killer Mike says at one point. "And I like guns."
