In his recent thinkpiece written for Mass Appeal, the Queens born rapper calls Trump a racist whose actions prove he doesn't care for those unlike him. 

"I don’t pay attention to politics at the moment. For what? There’s no reason. For me, it doesn’t make any sense. We all know a racist is in office.

" People can talk their s—t.  Comedians can sound racist. People can go through their moments of that s—t, but when you have the responsibility of being President and you carry on like that, you send a strong message to people outside of your group that they ain’t worth s—t."
