Lil Wayne Meets With Trump On Plan To Financially Empower Black Americans
“He Assured Us He Will Get It Done”
(ZH) Days after 50 Cent reneged on his support for President Trump in a video (where he admitted that many of his celebrity friends had reached out to pressure him to change his view), another rap super star has stepped up to give the president a vote of confidence and implicit support.
Rapper Lil Wayne and President Trump “had a great meeting” about the administration’s “Platinum Plan,” Trump’s effort to create millions of jobs in minority communities, outflanking Democrats in the process.
Wayne also went on a limb, risking his reputation to offer praise for the Administration’s efforts to help black Americans: “What he’s done so far with criminal reform, the platinum plan is going to give the community real ownership. He listened to what we had to say today and assured he will and can get it done.”

Rapper Ice Cube (Pictured here) has already fended off criticism for working with Trump, while Killa Mike, an Atlanta rapper and small business owner, said on CNBC the other day that 50 Cent, after his comments about Biden’s tax plan, “wasn’t crazy” – suggesting that Mike at least understood where 50 Cent was coming from as a business owner. Ice Cube over the summer introduced his “Contract for Black America” demanding specific reforms to close the opportunity gap in the community.
The contract asks politicians to back banking, police and prison reform, elimination of all Confederate statues, federal funding of “baby bonds” starting with $1,000 at birth, among other reforms to support the Black community in order to earn the “support of the Black vote.”
Since Kanye West launched his whisper campaign to compete as a write-in candidate, the Trump Campaign has been working to recoup Trump’s support among rappers and entertainers, which makes sense given the president’s close ties to the entertainment industry (and the fact that he’s delivered cameos and features on dozens of rap songs over the years).
We look forward to hearing Trump’s feature on “Tha Carter VI”.
