Pitbull Blasts Donald Trump’s Border Wall At 2017 Music Awards

Pitbull is not here for physical barriers between countries. While receiving the first-ever Dick Clark Achievement Award at the 2017 Latin American Music Awards, Mr. Worldwide took aim at Donald Trump’s plan to build a wall on America’s border with Mexico.

“Don’t ever forget that immigrants built the United States of America,” said the Cuban-American rapper. He added, “What I think they should be doing is building more schools instead of worrying about building a wall, if you know what I’m talking about.”

Pitbull’s statement about the potential border wall is not the first time the Miami representative has criticized Trump. In 2016, he called the Republican’s presidential candidacy a “joke.”

The “Give Me Everything” performer’s LAMA acceptance speech also included him offering positive words for the communities affected by recent natural disasters and gun violence.

“For the folks that are helpless right now, I want to motivate them and inspire them to stay strong, to rebuild even stronger,” stated Pitbull. “All the way from Puerto Rico to Cuba, the Keys, Houston, the earthquakes in Mexico, may God bless the souls of those in Las Vegas and to all the fires that are happening right now in Northern California. This is the time you’ve got to take and really appreciate what life is about. Live life, don’t let life live you.”

Chuck D Calls Donald Trump “The Epitome Of A White Supremacist”


In his own un-apologetic piece, Chuck D refers to Trump as a “weapon of mass destruction,” and bluntly states that “He’s a 70-year-old white alpha male who looks down on other peoples, and bullies others to get what he wants. If that’s not supremacy, then what the fuck is? He’s the epitome of a white supremacist.” We see no lies in his words.

The politically driven rapper not only tore into Donald Trump but also ripped Mike Pence in his latest cut “Prophets of Rage” which begs the question “Why is Mike Pence flying under the radar?”

 

Eminem Signs Compton Rapper Boogie To Shady Records

What, you thought Eminem would let all the attention from a blistering, anti-Donald Trump freestyle go to waste? Em has signed Compton-born rapper Boogie to Shady Records. 

“Boogie is everything I look for in an MC,” said Eminem via a press release. “Unique voice and point of view combined with crazy wordplay. This is a great fit and I’m excited for what’s to come.”

Boogie has released a series of mixtapes, including 2015’s The Reach, that got the attention of Interscope Records before Em’s label came in to seal the deal.

Shady’s current roster includes D12, Slaughterhouse, Yelawolf and Bad Meets Evil (Eminem & Royce Da 5′ 9″). Boogie is now at work on his debut album.

Trevor Noah Asks “When Is the Right Time for Black People to Protest?”

Following Donald Trump’s outlandish comments directed at Colin Kaepernick and NFL players who kneel for the National Anthem, the league saw virtually all of its teams come together in some form of solidarity during the Anthem for Sunday’s slate of games — some knelt, others interlocked arms, and the Pittsburgh Steelers even remained in the locker room for the song.

Now seemingly more than any other time in recent memory, individuals are asking the question: when is the right time for black people to protest? This in turn is exactly the topic that Trevor Noah tackled on a recent episode of The Daily Show.

Noah ultimately dove into the backlash that NFL players, Stevie Wonder and ESPN commentator Jemele Hill have received after speaking out against racism.

 

George Lopez Says If Trump Wants Safer Streets, Deport The Police

George Lopez has taken a shot at President Donald Trump’s immigration policies.

The comedian posted a message to his Instagram on Saturday that was specifically aimed at the president’s administration. Lopez made it clear he didn’t support Trump’s handling of immigration, which led to a 38 percent increase in deportation arrests in the president’s first 100 days. In that time, the arrests of undocumented immigrants without criminal histories doubled.

“The Trump administration is deporting Latinos to make the streets safer … you wanna make the streets safer, deport the police!” Lopez’s photo said.
