Hip hop almost unanimously condemns the election of Donald Trump.
Nearly every rapper in the country said they would be voting for Hillary Clinton or abstaining. Then it comes as no surprise that the hip hop community has nearly unanimously (Azealia Banks and Polow da Don being the most notable exceptions) condemned the election of Donald Trump to the United States presidency.
A sample of tweets and Instagram posts from rappres like The Game, Chance the Rapper, Yo Gotti, Lil Bibby, Remy Ma, Snoop Dogg, and Jeezy reveals a range of emotions in regard to Trump's victory, from confusion to disbelief to humor to disgust to solidarity. See the posts below.

We sorry guys...I swear on my life,If I could've done more I would've. We all deserve better. We just gotta live through this&prepare ourselves for what's next. We appreciate what you guys tried to do for US ALL as a nation. Unfortunately we weren't ALL ready for the change you wanted to bring about. Still, we love you & appreciate you for the HOPE your gave our community. We'll miss y'all!!!! But Unfortunately, it seems like we've been brought back to a worse place than we were in before. In your honor we'll remain honorable,respectable & continue to strive for greatness. I'll never let our dream die!!! WE CAN STILL DO IT!!!!
I'm disgusted...utterly & thoroughly disgusted. I just heard RudyGiuliani may have a seat with this idiot; if you from NY you remember the Giuliani era...Sad really sad. We all know that this sexist, racist, clown is not intelligent so you might wanna look into the people that he views as smart and will most likely be "advising" him. Also, I'm truly disappointed in the people that think this is a joke and are posting & making memes; This is real and if any of the rhetoric that was spewed during the campaigns is able to come to fruition I doubt that you'll be laughing & joking for long #HaveBeenUnfollowingAndBlockingPeopleAllNight #ImStillWithHer #RemyMa #RemyMafia
This goes out to those who advocated for #Trump I hope y'all remember Giuliani the guy who was locking #newyorkers up for petty crimes as small as a bag of weed ? Remember him? the so called zero tolerance guy who had central booking crowded as a motherfucker with petty criminals while rapist and child molesters walked the street free Yeah him he's gonna most likely be a part of the #Trump administration good job guys ️
I was gonna stress myself to sleep. But fuck that (I'm cussing sorry) I'm NOT letting this stress me out one bit. Don't get me wrong I am MAD AS HELL. But I have to practice what I preach. The amount of time I devote to meditating and not letting speculation or bad energy rule my life---for me to just spazz out would be counter productive. I'll be honest I went through 6 drafts of this. Erasing every last word cause I didn't even believe it as i typed it. I'm just saying: I got a laundry list to the top of Mt Fuji of things I've overcome and still managed to survive---I'm just praying whatever strength I was given to make it through the hard times of yesteryear, that this strength and power revive me and all of my people (women, those of different religious background, LGBTQIAs, prisoners, the poor, the imm---look it's 4am...---I don't feel like doing an 8th draft---some of my friends gonna be angry as all hell. Some will point fingers---nevermind....I got nothing. Right now. ---nothing
First off, I would like to apologize to Donald Trump for all the stupid jokes I made. (I was kidding). secondly, I would like to apologize for all the other times I was dumb enough to let the liberal media sway my opinion of you. Thirdly I'm fucking proud as FUCK of you. One for being a gemini, two for being from NYC, three for winning the presidency and four for beating the media. The last part is your biggest victory in my eyes and I must say that I am TRULY inspired by this and feel deep amounts of vindication. Thanks for letting me know that I'm not crazy (even though I fronted a few times) liberals run hollywood and it's been a COLD WORLD OUT HERE FOR ME AS A TRUMP SUPPORTER . Best of luck on everything and thanks again. Sincerely - AB #TRUMP2017
