It's not often that E-40
's name is linked to that of Bernie Sanders
. Maybe with fellow Bay rapper Berner,
wtih whom he's recorded, but not Bernie the Senator from Vermont who is running for Democratic nomination for President of the United States. And in the case of Bernie, his name might be linked with another hip-hopper, Run The Jewels
' Killer Mike
who is a big supporter, but not E-40 the Vallejo rapper/savvy businessman.
But in local Bay Area news reports this morning both the Vallejo rapper and the Democratic presidential primary candidate's names got equal top billing in stories on the Golden State Warriors
victorious win last night. Each basketball fans, both the rapper and the politician were in attendance at Oakland's Oracle Arena
for last night's exciting game where, following their 96-88 win, the Warriors won the NBA Conference Finals
against Oklahoma City Thunder
4-3. As well as reporting on the Warriors improbable win following the home team been down 3-1, local Bay Area news outlets reported on both E-40 and
Bernie Sanders been among those in attendance at the crucial game.
Sanders, who is busy campaigning in California this week with a stop in Emeryville today, had two big events in Oakland yesterday including a packed rally outside Oakland City Hall,
where the Secret Service jumped in to defend him when protesters hopped the barriers and bum rushed the podium. But even after his stressful busy day Sanders still had energy left to attend the Warriors game. Meanwhile E-40 is a longtime diehard basketball fan, especially the Warriors.
