Senator Bernie Sanders Introduces Run The Jewels At Coachella & RTJ Brings Out Nas

Posted by , Apr 16, 2016 at 08:58pm

Senator Bernie Sanders offers an introduction before Run The Jewels' Coachella set.


Coachella is currently going down. If you're not there in person, you can always watch it from the comfort of your couch with the live stream here. Run the Jewels are among this year's festival performers, and the duo received quite the introduction before hitting the Coachella stage.

It's no secret that RTJ, and specifically, Killer Mike support Senator Bernie Sanders. Killer Mike previously introduced Sanders in Atlanta, so perhaps the Senator was repaying the hip-hop group with his own introduction before their set. The Senator tells the Coachella crowd that getting to know Mike was one of the highlights of his run for Presidency. Watch the full introduction in the video above, and live footage below.

In addition to the Bernie Sanders intro, RTJ brought out Nas during their set (among other guests like Zack de la Rocha, Gangsta Boo,DJ Shadow, Despot and Gary Clark Jr). Watch some Instagram clips of Nas' surprise performance below. We'll update with more clips should they become available.
