On the eve of the presidential election, Donald Trump and Joe Biden held their final campaign rallies to get out the vote.
John Legend, Common, and Lady Gaga were stumping for Joe Biden, while Donald Trump received support from Lil Pump. The “Gucci Gang” rapper joined the president onstage at a late-night rally in Grand Rapids, Michigan on Monday (Nov. 2).
While introducing Pump, Trump mistakenly mispronounced his name. “Speaking of sound, music, and other things, one of the big superstars of the world, Little Pimp,” he said. “There he is. How’s it going? You want to come up and say something? Come on, Little Pump, come on up here.”
“Does everyone know who he is? Do you know how big he is?” Trump asked the crowd.
Wearing a MAGA hat, Pump took the stage to cheers. “Hello, everybody. How you guys feeling?” he asked. “I’ve come here to say, Mr. President, I appreciate everything you’ve done for our country. You brought the troops home and you’re doing the right thing. MAGA 202020. Don’t forget that! And do not vote for Sleepy Joe at all!”
The 20-year-old rapper, who voiced his support for Trump after bashing Biden’s tax plan, previously threatened to leave the country if the president lost the race to Biden. “Yo, no cap. If Trump does not get elected, I’m moving the f**k out of here,” he said, adding, “I’m going to Colombia, f**k it.”
Despite Pump’s Trump endorsement, his label, Tha Lights Global, is backing Biden-Harris for the White House. “Tha Lights Global supports everyone’s right to choose a Presidential candidate, however we want to make clear we do not support Donald Trump,” Tha Lights Global CEO Dooney Battle told Billboard.
Pump is the latest rapper to show support for Trump, following Lil Wayne, 50 Cent, and Kanye West, the latter of whom denounced the president. In a rally for Biden-Harris in Philadelphia, John Legend called out the rap community while referencing Jordan Peele’s 2017 movie Get Out.
“Some of your former favorite rappers have been taken in by these lies,” said Legend. “I think they even founded a new supergroup, it’s called the Sunken Place.”
