"I've had enough money taken from me by the government, why shouldn't I perform?"
RiFF RAFF apparently has no problem performing at Trump's inauguration, as long as he gets a check out of it. The rapper was asked about whether he would entertain the idea of performing at a Trump event by TMZ, and rather than denying the President-elect his support, the rapper seemed open to the idea.
“Well, I love money. And I’m in America. And I was born in America. And I love money. So why wouldn’t I?” he told the reporter, suggesting that he would perform for $50,000. "I’ve had to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxes, close to a million dollars in taxes myself. On the bright side, somebody told me that Donald Trump is going to lower the taxes from 40-something percent to 15 percent. That means 300,000 to 400,000 in my bank account personally. That’s a Lambo a year, money that I’ve been giving away. Whoever it is, I don’t care if it’s pack of Starbursts that’s running for President."
Judging by hip-hop's overall condemnation of Trump, there aren't too many others that would put a price on aligning themselves with the President-elect. However, we wouldn't mind seeing YG and Nipsey Hussle perform "Fuck Donald Trump" in protest of the inauguration.
