Lil Wayne became the latest high-profile Hip Hop artist to endorse Donald Trump on Thursday (October 27) when he revealed he’d met with the POTUS to discuss The Platinum Plan. But Lil Jon is one rapper who’s adamant he’ll never join the Trump train.
Shortly after the Wayne news broke, someone on Twitter pleaded with Jon to pledge his support to Trump along with the Cash Money legend and Lil Pump, who endorsed 45 earlier this month, to which he replied, “HOW ABOUT FUCKKKK NOOOOO,” making his feelings on the matter abundantly clear.

The famous “WHAT!? OK!” rapper’s response follows the Ice Cube and 50 Cent Trump fiascos. Earlier this month, 50 encouraged his 26.2 million Instagram followers to “vote for Trump” after seeing Joe Biden’s proposed tax plan, which would apply a 62 percent top tax rate to New Jersey and New York residents who make over $400,000 a year.
But with the assistance of his ex Chelsea Hander, 50 ultimately denounced Trump and admitted he was all talk. While speaking to The View recently, Handler revealed they’d had a phone conversation on Monday (October 26) to address the elephant in the room.
“I DM’d him and I said, ‘Can you please call me about this?’” Handler said. “‘I really I want to know if you’re serious about supporting Trump.’ He wasn’t serious. He was just screwing around on his Twitter. He is supporting Joe Biden. He made that very clear to me.”
Cube also confused his fans when Trump’s senior campaign advisor Katrina Pierson thanked him on Twitter for assisting them with aforementioned Platinum Plan. Consequently, Cube appeared on CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time to defend his position, explaining he didn’t “run” to support either candidate. He was simply willing to work with anyone in power to see his Contract With Black America (CWBA) was taken seriously.
But Wayne is apparently all in. While making his endorsement, Weezy praised 45 for his work on criminal reform.
“Just had a great meeting with @realdonaldtrump @potus,” Wayne said. “besides what he’s done so far with criminal reform, the platinum plan is going to give the community real ownership. He listened to what we had to say today and assured he will and can get it done.”
