Last week Lil B and Chance the Rapper released a collaborative mixtape titled Free, and this week, the Based God took some time to chat with CNN about politics. While he seemed to have been quite adamant with on showing his love to Hillary Clinton in “B*tch I’m Bill Clinton” before she had even announced her 2016 campaign, he seemed to have had a switch of allegiance to Bernie Sanders. Read a few excerpts of the interview below and the full feature on CNN’s website.
On his switch of allegiance
“No one’s really been saying anything about Hillary Clinton besides that she’s a woman and running for office,” Lil B said. “To me, it’s kind of like the same thing when Obama was running, but the difference is Obama seemed to have a more down-to-earth personality.
On Sanders’ run-ins with #BlackLivesMatter demonstrators
“It might be uncomfortable for him to talk about the issues but he has a leg to stand on. I mean, if he was marching for civil rights back then, he was protesting against segregation … and all the youth, the black youth, should be able to hear him out.”
