Many rappers, including Ice Cube, Lil Wayne, Lil Pump, and 50 Cent, have either endorsed or have been tied to President Donald Trump over the last few weeks. And John Legend has a lot to say about them.
At a recent Biden-Harris rally, John Legend went off when speaking about them. The singer said, “Now, some people see the meanness, the bullying, the selfishness of Donald Trump, and they mistake it for strength, a kind of twisted masculinity. Some see his greed, and they mistake it for being good at business.”
He adds, “Some of your former favorite rappers have been taken in by these lies. I think they even founded a new supergroup; it’s called the Sunken Place,” a nod to the hit Jordan Peele film Get Out.
He lastly states, “But Trump’s Platinum Plan for Black folks is nothing but fool’s gold because you can’t bank on a word he says. The president isn’t strong. He’s a coward.”
John Legend ended his speech discussing all the things Joe Biden and Kamala Harris plan on doing for our country.
