As he was in 2012, Killer Mike is very involved in the presidential election and very vocal. This time, Killer Mike has given Bernie Sanders his full support. With this being the primaries, Bernie Sanders is facing off with Hillary Clinton and there is plenty of mudslinging.
Politics, like sports, is a loaded debate and, if the conversation is pushed by opposing sides, feelings can be hurt. Apparently, this was the case, as now Killer Mike and Joan Walsh are facing off. With Mike holding it down for Sanders, Joan Walsh is Hillary Clinton’s vocal supporter.
Most rappers, especially those on Killer Mike’s level, have their own passionate and vocal fan base. When Killer Mike and Joan Walsh began standing up for their candidates, his fans targeted her, too. The primaries are often heated, but most get lost in the fighting, forgetting they are fighting for the same side of the landscape, prompting Mike to apologize to Walsh.
