Back in September, Run the Jewels and TV on the Radio linked up for a jaw-dropping Late Show performance of “Angel Duster”. On Tuesday evening, one half of RTJ, Killer Mike, swung by the Colbert set once again, but this time with something other than music on his mind.
When not tearing the down stage alongside El-P and the hip-hop duo’s trusty cat posse, the Atlanta MC is an outspoken critic when it comes to social issues such as racism and police brutality. Lately, he’s been heavily involved in politics, campaigning on behalf of Bernie Sanders; Killer Mike has interviewed the Democratic presidential candidate and even shared a meal with him.
Last night, he and Colbert discussed all these topics and more. Replay the full interview below.
