Run the Jewels rapper/activist Killer Mike spoke at a 5,000-person Bernie Sanders rally in his hometown of Atlanta on Monday. Beforehand, the Vermont senator/presidential hopeful and the dude who sliced Ronald Reagan into pieces on “Reagan” grabbed a bite at the Busy Bee Café on M.L.K. Drive.

“It was just a conversation between two angry radical guys, one 74 and white and one 40 and black and finding common ground,” Mike was quoted as telling reporters later in the day. Here they are at the diner:

In his speech at the rally, Killer Mike said:

“I have said in many a rap that I don’t trust the church or the government—Democrat or Republicans—but after spending five hours with someone who has spent the last 50 years...fighting for your life and mine, I can tell you that I am very proud today to announce the next President of the United States.”
