Hip Hop Artists Reacts To Donald Trump Winning Presidency

Hip Hop artists are reacting to Donald Trump winning the U.S. presidency.

During the long and bitter campaign for the highest office in the land, hip hop was often divided on how to vote but most artists were not in support of Trump. With a stunning upset on Tuesday night, Trump left not just half of the country stunned, but also the good folks in hip hop like Snoop Dogg, T.I., Chance the Rapper, Yo Gotti, The Game, Charlamagne Tha God, Jeezy, Remy Ma, Diddy and more.

T.I. posted a photo of Barrack and Michelle Obama on Instagram and wrote, “We sorry guys…I swear on my life,If I could’ve done more I would’ve. We all deserve better. We just gotta live through this&prepare ourselves for what’s next. We appreciate what you guys tried to do for US ALL as a nation. Unfortunately we weren’t ALL ready for the change you wanted to bring about. Still, we love you & appreciate you for the HOPE your gave our community. We’ll miss y’all!!!! But Unfortunately, it seems like we’ve been brought back to a worse place than we were in before. In your honor we’ll remain honorable,respectable & continue to strive for greatness. I’ll never let our dream die!!! WE CAN STILL DO IT.”

I was gonna stress myself to sleep. But fuck that (I'm cussing sorry) I'm NOT letting this stress me out one bit. Don't get me wrong I am MAD AS HELL. But I have to practice what I preach. The amount of time I devote to meditating and not letting speculation or bad energy rule my life—for me to just spazz out would be counter productive. I'll be honest I went through 6 drafts of this. Erasing every last word cause I didn't even believe it as i typed it. I'm just saying: I got a laundry list to the top of Mt Fuji of things I've overcome and still managed to survive—I'm just praying whatever strength I was given to make it through the hard times of yesteryear, that this strength and power revive me and all of my people (women, those of different religious background, LGBTQIAs, prisoners, the poor, the imm—look it's 4am…—I don't feel like doing an 8th draft—some of my friends gonna be angry as all hell. Some will point fingers—nevermind….I got nothing. Right now. —nothing
