John Legend Bestows Mocking New Name On Donald Trump-Supporting Rappers
Written by Black Voices on November 3, 2020
John Legend on Monday threw shade at rap musicians who’ve declared their help for President Donald Trump within the 2020 election — even suggesting a reputation for his or her supergroup.
The musician, talking at a drive-in rally in Philadelphia for Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris, informed followers that “a few of your former favourite rappers have been taken in” by Trump’s lies.
Lil Wayne and Lil Pump endorsed Trump in current days. Rapper 50 Cent, in the meantime, backpedaled on his public help of the president following a backlash.
“I believe they even based a brand new supergroup, it’s known as the Sunken Place,” Legend quipped, apparently referring to the scene of the identical title within the Jordan Peele-directed film “Get Out.”
Legend warned individuals to not be suckered by Trump’s guarantees.
“You’ll be able to’t financial institution on a phrase he says,” the singer stated. “Ask the scholars of Trump College. Ask the entire contractors he stiffed. Ask the individuals his charity have been supposed to assist earlier than it was shut down for being a fraud. Ask all of the Black and brown People who’re dying from this virus and dropping their jobs beneath his watch.”
“The president isn’t sturdy. He’s a coward,” continued Legend. “And his profession in enterprise and in authorities has been failure after failure after failure.”

Trump, in the meantime, on Monday mistakenly gave a brand new title to Lil Pump after inviting him up on stage at a rally in Florida. Trump later corrected himself.
