Killer Mike stopped by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert not to perform, but to talk. The two sat down and discussed Mike's role as a civic leader, Run The Jewels, his barbershops and, of course, Bernie Sanders.

When asked about his loyalty to Sanders, Mike had the following to say:

“Doctor King in his last two years of life talked about a poor people's campaign, organizing unions on the behalf of poor workers, organizing against a war machine that was perpetuating without us in Vietnam. Bernie Sanders is the only politician who has consistently for 50 years taken that social justice platform into politics. We can directly elect someone who cares about poor people, cares about women, gay, black rights, cares about lives that don’t look like his. This opportunity in history is not gonna come again in another 20 years.”
