The presidential election is a hot topic these days especially amongst young voters. Recently, Up and coming Atlanta rapper Lil Yachty took some time to talk politics with CNN. The young rapper expressed his support for Bernie Sanders, and respectfully refused to bash any other candidates.

“Vote for Sanders, okay? We gonna keep it positive,” Lil Yachty said. “I’m not negative. Right now I’m rooting for Bernie Sanders. It’s just not because he was with the Civil Rights Movement, but just everything he stands for.”

He was also asked how he first became aware of Bernie Sanders where it was revealed that it was in fact Lil B who put him on to the politician. Last year Lil B showed his support for Sanders on CNN as well.

“I heard about Bernie Sanders through Lil B cause Lil B was supporting so much, and it made me check him out…A lot of my fans tell me all the time, they don’t feel like their voice matters,” he said. “I think people just following the masses. And I don’t think they even really know what each side holds. By next election hopefully I’ll have such–not power, but I’ll be on a level where I can step out and talk about it. And I wanna say it’s important that you vote. Just to get out there. Everybody’s voice matters…At least take the time to do some homework on what’s going on.”
