Rapper Lil B drops Hillary Clinton support for Bernie Sanders, ‘he loves us’

Rapper Lil B is making headlines after publicly stating his support is now with Bernie Sanders. The artist dropped a track last year showing love and respect for former President Bill Clinton.

In his song “B—- I’m Bill Clinton,” he raps an endorsement for Hillary Clinton even before her 2016 presidential bid was announced: “Shout-outs to Hillary Clinton. You gonna win that presidency.”

Bernie Sanders donkeyhoteyIn an interview with CNN, Lil B explained why he switched his allegiance from Clinton to Sanders: “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.”

His “switch” began last month when he tweeted:

I herd Bernie @BernieSanders @SenSanders marched against segregation in the 60s which was not long ago! I love that brave dude! – Lil B

From California, his real name is Brandon McCartney, the rapper is saying, “As much as I want to a woman leading the USA, right now it’s all about Bernie … he’s the real he loves us.”

“Once the people started telling me about Bernie Sanders and comparing what he was doing back in his younger days and what she was doing, it made me kind of look at her different — not really respect her as much as I thought,” adding that “she was doing some other stuff for some Republican,” citing Clinton’s support for Sen. Barry Goldwater’s failed 1964 presidential campaign as a “Goldwater girl.”

“She didn’t have any part in trying to march against segregation. She was just a follower,” Lil B said.

And when Sanders followed him on Twitter, the rapper’s admiration for the Vermont senator grew because to Lil B, who candidates follow on social media tells him about who they feel they should be listening to.
