Rapper Lil B officially aligned himself with Bernie Sanders — casting aside his previous support for Hillary Clinton — in a series of tweets in July. He said Sanders' history as a civil rights activist and his support for free public eduction influenced his decision to switch candidates.
"As much as I want to a woman leading the USA, right now it's all about Bernie," he tweeted. "I herd [sic] Bernie... marched against segregation in the 60s which was not long ago! I love that brave dude!"
In an interview with CNN, he clarified, "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."
