*Public Enemy frontman Chuck D shared recently that he’s pretty disappointed for the lack of support for the president from his fellow rappers.
Although President Barack Obama has had a strong week with announcing the death of Osama Bin Laden and proving his American citizenship, the vocal support from the hip hop industry has been scarce as far as speaking out against Donald Trump.
“If rappers are so bold like they used to be there would be like 10 diss records for Donald Trump right now,” Chuck told Vibe magazine. “But the average rapper is afraid because they don’t know if Trump will have money for them one day. Money has brought their fear out. There are supposed to be 20 cats lined up cursing Trump the f— out. This is supposed to be hip-hop, right?”
He also went on to share that he’s basically disgusted with the community’s lack of faith in the Black man. And he also had some words for Donald Trump.
“Someone needs to say, ‘Yo, Donald Trump… you full of s— and I’m going to seriously f– you up.’ That’s what the rap community used to do, but now nobody can make that statement because everybody feels politically in debt.”
In the meantime, Obama is no punk and is more than capable of defending himself. He recently cracked a few jokes of his own against his potential presidential opponent at the recent White House Correspondents Association dinner Saturday night.
“I know that he’s taken some flack recently, but no one is happier, no one is prouder to put this birth certificate matter to rest than the Donald,” Obama joked. “And that’s because he can finally get back to focusing on the issues that really matter. Like did we fake the moon landing? What really happened in Roswell? And where are Biggie and Tupac?”
Note to Chuck D: Keep in mind that while President Obama was putting his proverbial foot in Trump’s arse Saturday night, he was also calling the shots on the raid that nabbed and killed bin Laden. He’s a big boy. He doesn’t exactly need help from any hip hoppers.
