Hustle Gang leader T.I. has offered some knowledge to people, especially ex-convicts, about what rights they have to vote with the presidential election quickly approaching.
Tip explained why he and others are eligible to vote despite serving time behind bars.
“What do you mean if I could,” Tip asked a paparazzo. “See, that’s the problem with thinking. You should know. Nah, I definitely can vote though. I voted for Obama both times. As long as you, and this is something most people don’t know, if you are not serving any sentence, as long as you are not on any probation or anything, if you have completed your term, you served your bid to society, you can re-register. [Who am I feeling right now?] Bernie Sanders. He might be the most honest and straight up dude, the most viable option.” (TMZ)
Odd Future leader Tyler, the Creator took aim at Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Instagram earlier this month.
Recently, rap star Rick Ross revealed his disinterest in staying updated on Trump’s presidential campaign.
“I haven’t been keeping up with that donkey. I keep it real. You know, before the wave, on my album Black Market, I gave everybody my energy so it’s out there. Y’all know how Rozay rock. Now it’s just time for me to continue building my empire regardless who comes in power, Rozay still gonna rise to the top, we don’t give a f*ck about who it is. But we always think about our brothers and the others.” (Tim Westwood TV)
Earlier this month, New York rapper Joey Bada$$ weighed-in on Trump running for president.
“With him, he’s rich as f*ck, he’s getting the best looks,” Joey said referring to Trump. “Whether good or bad, all publicity is good publicity. The way the sh*t is going right now, it’s like he’s already the president. Especially with all of this new chaos that’s breaking out at all his rallies – it’s like, ‘Yo. They’re about to turn the f*ck up.’ They’ve been provoking that in us for a minute and I feel like they’re going to go to the most extreme measure they could until we start really turning up and then they can just kill us. Yeah. … This sh*t is like WWE with Donald Trump.” (Whoolywood Shuffle)
