Donald Trump’s place in the 2016 Presidential Election has ruffled a record breaking number of feathers, especially within urban and minority communities.
It’s clear that Trump is not favored within the Hip-Hop community. Why would he be? His racist remarks and stereotypical statements have made it clear that Trump isn’t remotely concerned racial equality.
It seems to be every day that our time lines are graced by a different celebrity rant that we can add to an on-going series of social media match-ups against Donald Trump. Outside of Azealia Banks, who mentioned that she’s voting for Trump because he’s the “only one who truly has the balls to bust up big business,” it’s safe to say the majority of hip-hop won’t be voting for the businessman or his American dream.
Here are 5 Rappers who are sure Trump won’t “Make America Great Again”:
Surprisingly, one of Trump’s original social face-offs was against a white rapper. Proving that going against Donald Trump isn’t just a minority thing, Mac Miller has shown us that he definitely won’t be casting a Trump vote. Their beef dates all the way back to 2013 when Trump claimed the Pittsburgh rapper owed him a cut of the profits from the release Miller’s 2011 single “Donald Trump.”
After originally praising Mac Miller for the song and calling him the “new Eminem,” apparently Trump changed his mind.
It was just announced that @MacMiller’s song “DonaldTrump” went platinum—tell Mac Miller to kiss my ass!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 6, 2013
Little @MacMiller, I’m now going to teach you a big boy lesson about lawsuits and finance. You ungrateful dog!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 31, 2013
In 2015, Miller mentioned that Trump gets elected, he isn’t going to Canada like some of the others.
“I’m gonna be here every day telling the world how much I hate you, how much of a clown you are and how we as a nation are better than you will ever be… because I love America, and I’m never giving it up to a troll like you!”
According to XXL, Mac Miller called Trump a “di**head” and the rest is history. The beef is still alive and well to this day.
The “Church In The Streets” rapper was one of the first to speak out against Donald Trump after the announcement of his candidacy in the 2016 Presidential Election.
Though clearly angry, Jeezy kept things classy & composed while showing he knows what the heck he’s talking about.
We don't need @DonaldTrump representing us as americans. His hatred in his most recent statements shows he's not a legitimate candidate.— Young Jeezy (@Jeezy) July 20, 2015
He's just making a mockery of the presidential candidacy to help build his personal brand.— Young Jeezy (@Jeezy) July 20, 2015
One of the wisest rappers of our time has publicly blasted both Donald Trump and the media for their coverage of his presidential campaign.
“I feel like the integrity of the media is gone in many areas because when you choose to just be like, ‘Ok, we’re gonna show this Donald Trump because we know it’s about numbers,'” he told HuffPost Live.
The Chicago rapper also criticized Trump for the racist comments he made against Mexicans.
Meek Mill has made it clear that biting his tongue isn’t his thing. According to Vibe, the Philly rapper blatantly called Trump a racist after his comment toward Barack Obama.
It's clear @realdonaldtrump been racist..saying our "African American president" it's plain to see! We won't miss u when u perish!— Meek Mill (@MeekMill) April 28, 2015
As a proud Mexican artist, Kap G is known for showcasing his heritage, so you know he’s had quite a bit to say about the immigrant-bashing presidential candidate.
“Donald Trump was very ignorant for saying what he said,” Kap said on a phone interview.
“To label all of us all as rapists is very wrong of him. We, as Mexican people, are very family-oriented, hard working people, so I am very disgusted by his comments. Donald Trump will never know how it feels to be in our shoes, but not just us, all minorities. So at the end of the day, only God can judge us.”
