Lil Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., tweeted a photo of himself standing next to the president.
“Just had a great meeting with @realdonaldtrump @potus besides what he’s done so far with criminal reform, the platinum plan is going to give the community real ownership,” Wayne said. “He listened to what we had to say today and assured he will and can get it done.”
The photo showed the 38-year-old rapper smiling wide alongside Trump, both donning red, white and blue with their thumbs up.
50 Cent, real name, Curtis James Jackson III, was at the center of his own controversy after encouraging voters to back the president before retracting his endorsement earlier this week. He hinted on Twitter that he feels his friend Lil Wayne made a mistake.
“oh no WAYNE, I WOULD HAVE NEVER TOOK THIS PICTURE,” 50 Cent tweeted.
His reaction featured a facepalm emoji.
In his own explanation of the meeting, Lil Wayne praised Trump’s proposed “플래티넘 플랜” which includes creating 3 million jobs in the Black community over the next four years, 자본에 대한 접근을 거의 $ 500 미국 일자리를 보호하기위한 트럼프의 이민 정책 강화, 그의 말에 따르면 웹 사이트.
그 동안에, 50’s own controversy ended with him reversing his political backing of Trump, which all began when he criticized Joe Biden’s tax plans.
“WHAT THE F–K! (VOTE ForTRUMP) IM OUT,” 썼다 50 Cent in the caption of an Instagram post 10 월. 19. “에프–K NEW YORK The KNICKS never win anyway. I don’t care Trump doesn’t like black people 62% are you out of ya f–king mind.”
Among 50’s critics was his own ex-girlfriend, comedian Chelsea Handler, who was more than dismayed at his support of Trump. Handler said 50 Cent is no longer her “favorite ex-boyfriend,” which left quite the impression on 50 Cent. He ultimately rescinded his support after the comedian offered to pay the rapper’s taxes if he did so.
50 Cent’s final stance was delivered in a tweet late Saturday, 어느 the rapper wrote, “Another spin F–k 도널드 트럼프, I never liked him.
“For all I know he had me set up and had my friend Angel Fernandez killed but that’s history. LOL,” 50 추가.
Trump’s “플래티넘 플랜” has also been discussed by rapper Ice Cube, born O’Shea Jackson. 이번달 초, he confimed he’s been in talks with the president, which similarly resulted in a steady stream of backlash from Trump critics, and his fans.
Ice Cube has been calling out the system for more than three decades through his music, 하지만 최근에 그는 정치적 행동으로 전환했습니다. 여름 동안, 그는 “Black America와 계약,” 국가의 기회 격차를 줄이기위한 개혁 촉구.
Ice Cube has since insisted in several interviews that he reached out to both Republicans and Democrats and noted that only the Trump campaign agreed to make headway on his “Black America와 계약.”
Speaking on “트레버 노아와 함께하는 데일리 쇼,” the hip hop star explained that the backlash he received for seemingly becoming a Trump supporter was misguided, 그의 목표는 여전히 권력을 가진 모든 사람과 함께 일하는 것임을.
