Plies Slams Trump’s Conviction, Calls for Action from Black Community

Plies Slams Trump’s Conviction, Calls for Action from Black Community

Plies, known for his outspoken criticism of Donald Trump, didn’t hold back following the former president’s conviction in his hush money case. The rapper took to Twitter, later reposting on Instagram, with a bold message: “Dear Black Folks: If U Want Lawmakers To Change The Law About Convicted Felons Being Able To Run For President. I’m About To Tell Everyone How To Fix It! All African Americans Convicted Felons Let’s Start Signing Up For Elections & Running.”

Plies isn’t alone in the hip-hop world when it comes to reacting to Trump’s legal woes. Ice-T also shared his disdain, trolling Trump and his supporters on Twitter. Despite the mockery, there’s widespread skepticism about Trump actually serving jail time, considering the nature of his conviction.

Other rappers, like 50 Cent, have taken a more light-hearted approach, mocking Trump either for fun or out of genuine political disagreement. The hip-hop community’s relationship with Trump has evolved significantly over the years. Initially less serious, Trump’s presidency has polarized artists, some condemning him while others, like Sleepy Hallow and Sheff G, offer their support.

As the election approaches, Trump’s conviction stirs even more controversy and conversation. Whether this changes public opinion remains to be seen, but it’s clear that Plies and others are determined to use this moment to push for change.

Joe Budden Blasts Big Sean for Vague Disses, “I’m Sick of the Confusion!”

Joe Budden

Joe Budden, never one to hold back, recently took aim at Big Sean during a passionate rant on his podcast. Budden, who has extensive experience in the hip-hop industry, shared his frustration over Big Sean’s ambiguous disses in his music. This critique follows accusations that Big Sean subtly jabbed at Kendrick Lamar and possibly Kanye West in his “On The Radar” freestyle.

Budden voiced his concerns, stating, “My problem with Big Sean is — respectfully, if you’re watching, Big Sean. I mean no disrespect by this — the vagueness that comes with his disses. Big Sean does lyrically diss people, and then we hear it as fans and we get to guessing. And then every guess we [make], he says, ‘You’re wrong.’ But he don’t never tell us who he’s dissing. Not that he has to, but our guesses be sounding accurate to us.”

Joe’s gripe is clear: the lack of clarity in Big Sean’s lyrical shots leaves fans speculating and often misinterpreting the targets of his disses. This has created a whirlwind of confusion in the hip-hop community, according to Budden.

Biden Bows Out, Kamala Harris Gets Joe’s Backing for 2024 Showdown!

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris

Joe Biden has announced his withdrawal from the presidential race via a heartfelt message on X. Reflecting on his accomplishments and expressing gratitude to the American public, Biden also revealed that he will address the Nation later this week to provide further insight into his decision.

The immediate question on everyone’s minds was who would step up to challenge Trump. Biden swiftly put those queries to rest by endorsing Vice President Kamala Harris. “Choosing Kamala as my Vice President in 2020 was my best decision,” Biden stated. “Today, I fully support and endorse Kamala to be our party’s nominee this year.”

This endorsement follows a New York Times report suggesting the Biden-Harris campaign was secretly assessing Harris’s potential against Trump, a claim denied by White House spokesperson Andrew Bates. “This is unequivocally false,” Bates asserted, reinforcing the team’s unwavering support for Biden.

The announcement comes amid speculation about Biden’s debate performance, with sources close to the campaign questioning his viability. “He needs to drop out,” one insider claimed, while another doubted his path to victory.
