“Oh no,” 50 Cent wrote on Thursday night. “I will never take this picture.”
Ice Cube, the founding member of the NWA, released a song titled “Arrest the President” in 2018 and faced similar scrutiny after announcing this month that he had consulted the Trump administration on the platinum plan. He later said that he wanted to work with both parties and did not recognize Mr. Trump, adding: “I don’t trust them.”
“The progress of blacks is a bipartisan issue,” Ice Cube said. “I will advise anyone on the planet who has the right to help black Americans close the huge gap between rich and poor.”
Trump claimed to be the best black president since Abraham Lincoln, despite his racially questionable record, including his declaration of white supremacists after the 2017 Charlottesville riots, “both sides There are very good people.” His campaign has stated that he hopes to slightly improve his performance with black voters in 2016, when Mr. Trump won 8% of black votes. Of course, Biden has approved many rappers, including Cardi B, Offset and Snoop Dogg (Snoop Dogg), while others like Waka Flocka Flame and Lil Pump of Mexican and Cuban descent have expressed their willingness to support the president.
In an interview, the writer, filmmaker and activist Dream Hampton praised the rapper for “walking around in the fourth quarter and talking about making demands” as “the arrogance of celebrities”. She pointed out that although blacks will still vote overwhelmingly for Democrats-according to a recent poll by The Times/Siena, Mr. Biden leads blacks 78-11, but against Trump The president’s masculinity and the allure of economic success can explain some part of his involvement in the hip-hop community.
She said: “This is the same reason they mentioned him in the 90s-this is a lie of the American Dream.” “This is a lie about black entrepreneurship, and to some extent a panacea for solving these larger social problems. Hip-hop has become synonymous with it, and it has promoted the personal achievements of black people.”
Ms. Hampton added: “Even during these 11 hours, there are real reasons to criticize Joe Biden.” “But we”-the black activist and organizer-“are already doing this.”
