Waka Flocka has recently stated categorically that President Donal Trump was a better President than past President and the first black president of The United States Of America, President Barack Obama. This came after another Hip-Hop legend 50 Cent ‘Curtis” came out to support Trump and in a twist of event the rapper has felt the wrath of the new media followers who have descended heavily on the rapper for his sharing his thoughts.
It all started on Thursday when hip-hop personality and commentator DJ Akademiks shared a clip of a speech Obama gave on Instagram. Obama appeared at a rally in Philadelphia on Wednesday in support of his former vice president and the current Democratic presidential candidate, Joe Biden. “The big homie #barackobama violated #donaldtrump at a rally event today,” Akademiks captioned the post.
While some fans of the “Hard in Da Paint” rapper were surprised by the comment, many of them were simply upset that Flocka would disrespect everything America’s first Black president represented in favor of Trump.
I’m so not here for Black men (waka stupid ass flocka) in real time disrespecting Obama. Like wtf ? He was the first black president! He is 1 out of 45 & is the ultimate sign of hope for young black boys.

Others weren’t surprised at all by Flocka’s comment and noted that he was one of dozens of rappers and fan-favorite celebrities that secretly rocking MAGA caps.

In the midst of all the backlash, Flocka did manage to gain some new supporters who were excited to welcome him to the “Trump Train”—like conservative commentator Tomi Lahren.

Flocka’s comment is also a different type of tune from the one the Atlanta native was singing just a few years ago. Back when Trump was campaigning in 2015, Flocka went on a Twitter rant disparaging Trump over the real estate mogul’s infamous claim that Mexicans crossing the border were “bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime. They’re rapists and some, I assume, are good people, but I speak to border guards and they’re telling us what we’re getting.”
Flocka—who is of African American, Native American, European and Dominican decent—blasted Trump for the bigoted comment, writing on Twitter,
“I wonder how many hardworking Mexicans built those #trumptowers #patheticman!!!”
