Atlanta rapper Killer Mike is one half of hip-hop sensation Run the Jewels. Bernie Sanders is a loud-talking independent senator from Vermont and Democratic presidential candidate. Together, they've sent social media into a frenzy. Sanders was in town Monday for a rally at The Fox Theatre, where Mike offered his full endorsement. More importantly, the duo enjoyed some soul food at iconic meat-and-three Busy Bee Cafe.

Sanders didn't pass on the hearty cuisine at Busy Bee, unlike so many other politicians when they visit iconic, if not exactly healthy restaurants. The senator reportedly dined on fried chicken and yams. Sadly, he didn't get an Instagram-worthy shot of his meal.
Anyone who's a fan of Killer Mike knows his liberal leanings and disdain for certain former Republican presidents. Considering the rapper's rising status as a social and political commentator, his endorsement is a big get for Sanders. In addition to the rally and meal, the duo stopped by Killer Mike's barbershop for the ultimate photo op.
