|Rapper T.I. Writes Open Letter To Donald Trump !!|
While T.I. previously has clowned Donald Trump, even going as far as to say that he refuses to accept the reality that he won the election, now the rapper has decided to do what he can to lead others and spark an important dialogue in order to help move our country forward positively.
|President Donald Trump|
“So, I can’t help but ask in the midst of our nation’s calamity and discord: What do you want US to see?”
He added: “Should it ever at times seem as though WE are against YOU, I assure you it’s a result of YOU defining yourself as the representative for those who are and who always have been against US. The deck has always been stacked against US in this country.
With every generation there has been strategic steps taken to oppress, imprison and control US. All we’ve ever wanted was equality and empathy as the historically disenfranchised citizens that we are,
in a nation that we’ve contributed to just as much as anyone else who calls America their home.”
Tip has been critical of Trump in the past, but vowed to make strides towards understanding in the future.
Throughout the election process, Trump has mostly been criticized by the hip-hop community. Artists like Common, ScHoolboy Q, Jeezy, will.i.am, Macklemore, G-Eazy, and Nipsey Hussle have all voiced their many concerns in various ways. However, Kanye West has endorsed and met with Trump since the election.
So far, no rapper has volunteered to perform at the President-elect’s upcoming inauguration. But
yesterday, YG said he would perform his anti-Trump anthem “FDT” at the event for $4 million.
