Lil Wayne In Trouble With 50 Cent, The Hip Hop And Black Community

The world is very keen and waiting patiently with the upcoming American Presidential elections. This of course has had important figures and celebrities choose sides, but this particular one isn’t sitting well with the Hip Hop and Black Community.

This follows Lil Wayne’s endorsement of Donald Trump and his “Platinum Plan”, to which the community had reacted to Weezy’s post. “Just had a great time with @realdonaldtrump” tweeted Wayne much to the disappointment of many of his fans. “Besides what he has done so far with criminal reform, the platinum plan is going to give the community real ownership. He listened to what we had to say today and assured he will and can get it done.” The photo was posted alongside the statement and shows the two posing together with no social distancing.

Among the first rappers to call out Wayne for the post was 50 Cent, who expressed interest in voting for Trump over Biden, until very recently due to the latter’s proposed tax increase. “Oh no Wayne, I WOULD HAVE NEVER TOOK THIS PICTURE”, he tweeted. He wasn’t on board with how much tax he would have to pay if Biden wins, but his ex-girlfriend Chelsea Handler has since spoken with him and indicated that he is “absolutely” supporting Biden.

He is not the only rapper to call out Wayne for the photo, as Royce Da 5’9″ has expressed his disappointment too. “This ain’t the Iconic Genius that said, {And I Quote} “Bitch real G’z move in silence like a lasagna” he wrote in an Instagram post. “I rebuke you, Satan… stay away from our 🐏 … And Wayne would’ve never worn a shirt to the White House.”

Here are some other reactions to Wayne’s post.

It appears the so called “Platinum Plan” Wayne endorsed was supposedly assisted by Ice Cube which promises to pump billions of dollars into black communities across the country. Lil Wayne was also criticised over his response to police brutality and the Black Lives Matter movement. Seems there is a great divide in the Hip Hop and Black Community going towards the upcoming elections. Keep your eyes peeled for more.
