Bernie Sanders and Killer Mike is my new favorite bromance.

Whoever gets elected as President in 2016 (for the love of God don’t let it be Donald Trump), their wife will never be as cool as Michelle Obama. The First Lady has dunked on the Miami Heat and joined Beyonce on stage, and in this new video from funnyman Jay Pharoah, she’s showing off her rap skills.

“South Side Chicago, we all know/We had to do overtime every night to make it tomorrow/And everyone could really make their dream true/Hey, kid, listenin’ in Michigan that could be you,” she spits. The video is part of Michelle Obama’s Better Make Room campaign and its Reach Higher initiative, which aims to promote further education for high school students.
