FAST FIVE: "He Assured Us He Will Get It Done" – Lil Wayne Meets With Trump On Plan To Financially Empower Black Americans
“He Assured Us He Will Get It Done” – Lil Wayne Meets With Trump On Plan To Financially Empower Black Americans Tyler Durden Fri, 10/30/2020 – 06:44 Days after 50 Cent reneged on his support for President Trump in a video (where he admitted that many of his celebrity friends had reached out to pressure him to change his view), another rap super star has stepped up to give the president a vote of confidence and implicit support.
He listened to what we had to say today and assured he will and can get it done.
Ice Cube over the summer introduced his “Contract for Black America” demanding specific reforms to close the opportunity gap in the community.
The contract asks politicians to back banking, police and prison reform, elimination of all Confederate statues, federal funding of “baby bonds” starting with $1,000 at birth, among other reforms to support the Black community in order to earn the “support of the Black vote.” Since Kanye West launched his whisper campaign to compete as a write-in candidate, the Trump Campaign has been working to recoup Trump's support among rappers and entertainers, which makes sense given the president's close ties to the entertainment industry (and the fact that he's delivered cameos and features on dozens of rap songs over the years).
We look forward to hearing Trump's feature on “Tha Carter VI”.
