2 Chainz Turns Down Invitation to Perform at Donald Trump’s Inauguration
Donald Trump is looking for artists to perform at his inauguration, and it appears he reached out to some rappers in hopes of adding some flavor to the set. 2 Chainz claims he was contacted about performing at the event, but declined.
The Atlanta rapper revealed the news via a video on Instagram. Posted up in the back of a Maybach, he started, "So I usually just leave a lot of shit to myself. I wanted to go to The White House. I never got invited. I seen all them beautiful pics of everybody going to all these parties. I just wanted to say what's up to Barack. We all came from a troubled past, but I seen him give people some really big chances."
He continued, "But anyway it didn't happen, and I'm cool with that. But then Trump calls management. And I know they only doing this 'cause they can't get nobody else. They want me to perform for the inauguration. I had to say nah. No matter how much money it was. I probably won't be going to The White House no time soon," he concluded.
2 Chainz has a different thought process than Riff Raff, who said he would have no issue performing at Trump's inauguration, when asked back in November. All he wants is a cool $50,000.
“Well, I love money. And I’m in America. And I was born in America. And I love money. So why wouldn’t I?” said Riff when asked if he would grace the stage at Trump’s inaugural festivities if called upon. “I’ve had enough money taken away from me by the Government, why shouldn’t I perform?” he added. “Give me $50K, and I’m good.”
Snoop Dogg has promised to clown the first "Uncle Tom" to perform for Trump. In an Instagram video he posted a couple days ago, Snoop wondered aloud, “So ain’t nobody gonna perform for Donald Trump, huh? Which one of you jiggaboo ass niggas gonna be the first one to do it? I’m waitin.’ I’m gonna roast the fuck out of you uncle tom ass niggas for doin’ it. Which one of you niggas gonna do it first?”
It won't be Tity Boi.
