Hustle Gang leader T.I. is ready to see President Barack Obama in the White House again. The King of the South has hit up social media with a potential strategy to see everyone’s favorite former head of state return to Washington, DC.
Tip went to Instagram Friday (September 14) to suggest Obama consider running as a vice president candidate in the next election.
However, fellow Atlanta rapper Killer Mike shared a different take on Obama coming back.

In my opinion this wud be promoting #Oligarchy & is totally the WRONG thing to do. This republic was not made to be ruled over by a select few. Especially one that wrote a crime bill that crippled our community & another who in spite of having 95% of the black vote did nothing that was overtly for the black community’s legacy such as Appointing a black to the Supreme Court and or aiding HBCU and black banks. Both of which he cud have. Neither of them tried to decriminalize weed nationally and thus allowing the drug war to continue. These guys had their shot but we need new MORE PROGRESSIVE leadership or nothing at all. The old guard is over a new day is here.
This week, Chicago rapper Vic Mensa took direct aim at President Donald Trump over the number of deaths connected to last year’s Hurricane Maria disaster in Puerto Rico.
Last month, hip-hop pioneer Nas paid respect to both Obama and NBA superstar LeBron James.
