See Bernie Sanders Rap in DJ Steve Porter’s ‘Bern It Up’ Video Remix
Bernie Sanders and his supporters are confident that the Senator from Vermont is well qualified to serve as Commander in Chief, but does he have what it takes to be a hip-hop star? Video-remix specialist DJ Steve Porter seems to think so, judging from his latest Rolling Stone exclusive supercut. Porter, who knows a little something about hip-hop – he recently helped us celebrate Eminem’s birthday with his “Shady Birthday” remix – cleverly stitched together snippets of Sanders speeches to create a surprisingly catchy rap track called “Bern It Up.”
Yet despite the style of the song, Porter thinks that Sanders embodies the spirit of a different musical genre altogether: “Bernie is an absolute heavy-metal rock star,” he enthuses, “and his middle-class message deserved an anthem. Hopefully ‘Bern It Up’ is it!” Check it out above.
