Here's Why Lil B Will Pick Bernie Sanders Over Hillary Clinton For U.S. President

Bernie Sanders for president ? Well, Lil B seems to believe so.

After heavily being on the Hillary Clinton bandwagon for quite sometime, (see: "B***h Im Bill Clint0n") Lil B has had a change of mind in who he thinks should govern this country.  In a political-infused Twitter rant last month, the California rapper professed his liking for Bernie Sanders in the presidential election.

But besides the tweets, Lil B went onto describe in detail the sentiments behind his decision to back up Bernie and dismiss Hillary in a recent CNN interview. "No one's really been saying anything about Hillary Clinton besides that she's a woman and running for office," Lil B told the news outlet. "To me, it's kind of like the same thing when Obama was running, but the difference is Obama seemed to have a more down-to-earth personality."

In addition to this, he also mentioned that what Sanders was doing in his younger years is far for appealing to him than what Hillary was doing. Thus, primarily because she used to work for Republican Sen. Barry Goldwater’s defunct 1964 presidential campaign.

"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," he continued. “She was doing some other stuff for some Republican…She didn't have any part in trying to march against segregation. She was just a follower."

Lastly, the rapper whose been known for his political activism—he has given motivational speeches in various collegiate institutions including NYU, UCLA and MIT—had some choice words for presidential candidates in order to gain more African-American voters: "To win African-American voters you have to feel them," but most of the candidates "don't understand what that means."

Young Thug Says Lil Nas X 'Shouldn't Have Told The World' About His Sexuality

Young Thug recently hopped on the second remix for Lil Nas X's record-breaking song "Old Town Road." In the midst of the response to the newest version of the track, the ATLien gave some of his thoughts about the other news pertaining to his collaborator.

According to an interview Thugger gave to YouTube's No Jumper, he believes that the 20-year-old may receive backlash for recently coming out about his sexuality, and that he shouldn't have told the world that he was gay.

“I feel like he probably shouldn’t have told the world,” Thug said. “He shouldn’t have told the world because it’s like, these days, motherf**ers just... it’s just all judgment. Like, motherf**ers just judging. It ain’t even about the music no more."

"Once you found out he was gay, everybody, soon as the song come on now, everybody, like, ‘This gay a** n***a.’ N***as don’t even care to listen to the song no more.”

In late June, Lil Nas X opened up about identifying as a gay man, stating that a deeper meaning alluding to his sexuality could be found in his song "c7osure." In an interview with BBC, he stated that he has indeed been dealing with backlash since coming out. However, he's trying to remain positive.

"It was like, I don’t wanna just live my entire life—especially, you know, how I just got to where I’m at—not just like doing what I wanna do," he said of admitting his sexual preferences.

“I just feel like, he young, and it’s like backlash can come behind anything,” Young Thug continued on the show. “So it’s like, it wasn’t a bad idea, and it was most definitely the best time to do it, during Pride. That was the best time to do it, that was a G’s move."

"But it’s like, he young, so I know what he going to be dealing with, with it in his mind, I dealt with this sh*t before. I know what he going to be dealing with. So that’s why I was like, f**k, he should have never said that, he should have never told them.”

Quavo Supports A$AP Rocky, Says He Was Also Targeted By Swedish Authorities

Quavo is commenting on the situation in Sweden involving A$AP Rocky. The A$AP Mob member is reportedly being held in a Swedish jail for alleged assault on an unidentified man.

After being prompted about cancelling shows in Europe a la Tyga in support of the Testing MC, the Migos member stated that while he wouldn’t cancel any shows, he is standing by A$AP, as he experienced a similar incident during his time overseas.

"Sweden had us down on the curb," he explained to the paparazzi. "Soon as we went to Sweden, they had me and my cameraman down on the curb and they were trying to lock us up too.”

“They ended up letting us go and it is what it is but Sweden is real tough,” he continues. “I don't know if I'd [cancel shows] but free my boy Rocky."

Despite reports, the 30-year-old MC is not being held in deplorable conditions. His lawyer Henrik Olson Lilja states that the rapper is in a common detention center and that he has no restrictions, meaning that he can “meet whomever he wants,” and that there is a waiting period to do so.

If convicted, A$AP Rocky faces up to six years behind bars.
