Jeezy dropped by The Breakfast Club this morning and clarified a recent comparison he made of Donald Trump and Tupac Shakur.
“When I look at the election right now and all the bullshit that’s going on, you can’t help but laugh,” Jeezy told host Taxstone during his Tax Season podcast interview. “You got Donald Trump – and I tell n*ggas, that n*gga’s cold. If he was a rapper right now, he’d be 2Pac. If you put that album out right now, it’d be diamond. He hot.”
Asked about the “controversial” comparison on The Breakfast Club, Jeezy fired back at his haters questioning their attention span. “Did your ignorant ass listen to the whole interview? … that’s what I hate about my people, black people, we just take whatever and run with it.”
“I was saying that he’s the hottest person in politics, and had he dropped an album right now, he’d go diamond like Tupac did because he’s the hottest person in what he’s doing,” Jeezy explained. “He’s everywhere, like you can’t turn on the TV and not see this dude. And he really don’t give a fuck.”
The Atlanta rapper also said Trump’s outlandish behavior has been the fuel that has ignited the GOP’s base. “For the Republican Party, they’re boring. They’re like old people that just count they money. He’s giving them something they never had. He’s giving them excitement. He’s rebellious. This man called Hillary Clinton the devil, I wouldn’t call my auntie that.”
