Last year, Run the Jewels MC Killer Mike gained wide spread respect with his essay on the shooting of black teenager Michael Brown by American police. Since then he has become something of a figurehead for young American's looking to get involved in politics - so it makes perfect sense that he should interview Democratic Presedential candidate Bernie Sanders.
