The country continues to react to the news that Donald Trump will be the next president, with LeBron James, who actively endorsed Hillary Clinton, using a Kendrick Lamar song to express his feelings. He posted the above snippet of “Alright” to Instagram, saying the song is his best answer to the election results.
“If we continue the faith (as hard as it may be to do so) we will BE ALRIGHT!!” he wrote. “Parents and leaders of our children please let them know they can still change the world for the better! Don’t lose a bit of faith! They’re our future and we must remain stronger than ever!!…Love, genuine LOVE and FAITH will be the only thing that can get us through this. Minorities and Women in all please know that this isn’t the end, it’s just a very challenging obstacle that we will overcome!!…To all the youth out there I PROMISE I’ll continue to lead u guys every single day without no hesitation!!”
Trump took LeBron’s home state of Ohio 52 to 44 percent.
On Election Day (and even the night prior), many rappers made sure their voice was heard by getting out to vote. While some like Lil Dicky and Dreezy used social media to show “I voted” stickers, others like Chance The Rapper went into action by leading people to the polls to cast their vote in Chicago.
Once Trump was announced as president, the reactions from hip-hop were of shock to say the least. T.I., Snoop Dogg, Papoose and more sounded off. Check out the gallery below to see rappers reactions to Donald Trump’s presidential win.
