莉尔·韦恩, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., tweeted a photo of himself standing next to the president.
“刚刚与@realdonaldtrump @potus进行了一次很棒的会面，此外他到目前为止在刑事改革方面所做的工作, 铂金计划将赋予社区真正的所有权,” 韦恩说. “他听了我们今天要说的话，并保证他会并且能够做到。”
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 “白金计划” which includes creating 3 million jobs in the Black community over the next four years, 几乎使获得资本的机会增加 $ 500 十亿美元并加强特朗普的移民政策以保护美国的工作, 据他 网站.
与此同时, 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–ķ! (VOTE ForTRUMP) IM OUT,” 写 50 Cent in the caption of an Instagram post 在十月. 19. “F–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 He ultimately rescinded his support after the comedian offered to pay the rapper’s taxes if he did so.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, 在其中 the rapper wrote, “Another spin F–唐纳德·特朗普, 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 added.
特朗普的 “白金计划” has also been discussed by rapper Ice Cube, born O’Shea Jackson. 本月初, 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, 但最近他转向政治行动. 夏天时, he released a “与美国黑人签约,” calling for reforms to close the opportunity gap in the country.
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 “Contract with Black America.”
Speaking on “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah,” the hip hop star explained that the backlash he received for seemingly becoming a Trump supporter was misguided, noting that his goal is still to work with everyone in power.
