Atlanta-based rapper Killer Mike is Sen. Bernie Sanders’ biggest fan, having crisscrossed the country to get young Americans to #FeelTheBern and making the rounds on talking-head TV shows. It also appears Mike, (aka: Michael Render) has sights on a Sanders event in Atlanta.
I can guarantee the rap-concert-qua-political-rally would be massively attended. In fact I’d go so far as to say it will be Georgia’s biggest political event of the year–if it does happen. Sanders has routinely drawn crowds of several thousand, including 7k at a rally on MLK day in Alabama. I’ve seen a few posts on Reddit claiming 50,000 people at rallies but it’s easy to discount some of the, ahem, enthusiasm for Sanders on Reddit.
