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.
