Watch Killer Mike's interview on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert."

Killer Mike has been the most outspoken supporter of Bernie Sanders in the hip hop community. Last night, he appeared on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" to let Colbert know why he is Feeling the Bern, as well as discuss the #BlackLivesMatter movement, explains how he acquired the name 'Killer Mike,' and more.

Dressed in his "formal sweats," Mike urged white college students to get outside the college environment and get to know a marginalized student who is succeeding in school, to help that young person help their community, but also to help foster their own sense of empathy. This summary does not do his eloquence justice, as the crowd burst into applause when he was done speaking.

As for the next Run the Jewels album? "We're working on [it] right now."
