Atlanta’s hot new artist Lil Yachty recently had a sit down with CNN and talked up some politics. The potential XXL freshman spoke with the news network and addressed why he has chosen to vote for Bernie Sanders – giving all credit to Lil B the Base God for his change of heart on choosing a candidate:

“I heard about Bernie Sanders through Lil B cause Lil B was supporting so much, and it made me check him out…A lot of my fans tell me all the time, they don’t feel like their voice matters. I think people just following the masses. And I don’t think they even really know what each side holds. By next election hopefully I’ll have such–not power, but I’ll be on a level where I can step out and talk about it. And I wanna say it’s important that you vote. Just to get out there. Everybody’s voice matters…At least take the time to do some homework on what’s going on.”

Sanders has had a strong support line from the hip-hop community, from Killer Mike, T.I. and even the younger generation in Rae Sremmurd.
