T.I. has some strong words for Donald Trump
As Donald Trump continues to remain the frontrunner for the GOP nomination, big names from the hip-hop world have begun to proclaim their disapproval of his potential presidency. Just yesterday, John Legend called Trump a racist in a Twitter back and forth with the real estate tycoon’s son (Donald Jr.), and a few days ago, Chris Brown went on a heated Instagram tirade (in written form) against Trump’s allegedly racist policy stances. Rapper T.I. is the latest to voice his opposition to the controversial candidate, as he went on Instagram today to post a video message directly intended for Trump’s own ears.
“Donald Trump, this message is for you,” began the Grand Hustle boss. “My name is Clifford “T.I.P.” Harris. I say this as nonviolently but unapologetically as possible: Fuck you and fuck what you stand for! Nobody who supports me will support you. End of message.”

In the caption of the post, T.I. further outlined his contempt for Trump. “I know u got plans for my people that are contrary to OUR BEST INTERESTS,” he wrote. “Make no mistake… WE AIN’T ON THE SAME SIDE.”
Does T.I.’s statement ring true for you hip-hop fans out there? Any rare birds who support both T.I. and Trump?
