Other rappers who have come out in support of Trump include iconic rapper Ice Cube.
Earlier this year, the rapper called on black Americans to reconsider voting for the Democrat Party because “nothing has changed.”
“There’s, like, a stigma amongst the African American community to Republicans and stuff like that,” Ice Cube said.
“I don’t know what’s going on in the African American community when it comes to that,” he added.
“You know what I mean? Black people have supported Democrats overwhelmingly for 50, 60 years, and nothing has changed. So something’s got to change.”
