Unlike 50 Cent, who endorsed Trump before changing his mind and admitting that he was trolling the entire time, New Orleans-born legendary rap artist Lil Wayne appears to be fully serious about voting for Donald Trump in next week’s election.
Just had a great meeting with @realdonaldtrump @potus besides 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. 🤙🏾 pic.twitter.com/Q9c5k1yMWf
He has come under fire for his comments in the past, specifically about Black Lives Matter and the murder of George Floyd and, this week, he hit a new low when he endorsed Trump for re-election.
The President obviously appreciates the support, as he is currently trailing in the polls and can use as many guaranteed votes as possible.

“He’s a really nice guy. He’s really an activist in a very positive way,” said Trump about Lil Tunechi. “And he asked for a meeting and we had the meeting and as you saw the meeting went very well. Lil Wayne.”
It remains unclear what the President met with Wayne about but, in the rapper’s tweet, he spoke about the Platinum Plan for Black Americans and how it convinced him to vote for the divisive leader.
