Since his inauguration, Donald Trump has not been too much of a president. It is not like he was even making any great effort to be president-like but the Orangeman is now sounding more like a rapper than the leader of the “free world”.
As the rhetoric between North Korea and the United States gets more heated, listening to Trump makes you feel like you are listening to a Biggie Smalls or Jay-Z album. Not just any song on the album but a song where they are lyrically killing another rapper.
Maybe Trump should be commended for being the first president to bring street and gangsta talk to the presidency. However, imagine if president Obama has said the following:
“North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen.”
Obama would have been called a hoodlum and a thug. However, Donald “Biggie Smalls wannabe” Trump gets away with it because most of his base actually wish they were Brooklyn or Compton rappers; WWA or KKK-One.
As Trump spouted his fire and fury line, all I thought about was Biggie rhyming:
“Kick in the door waving the four four / All you hear is Poppa don’t hit me no more.”
For those who thought what gangsta rapper Trump fire and fury comment was just ad lib gone wrong, he made it clear that they were well written and recited rap lines that just weren’t gangsta enough.
“Maybe it wasn’t tough enough,” Trump said during a lengthy exchange with reporters. How much tougher could it get Orangeman? Any tougher and he would have to actually quote Biggie Smalls and rap the following to Kim Jong Un:
“All I got is heat and tough talk for you / Tie you up; cut your balls off just for you.”
One thing is for sure, Donald Trump might not be quoting Biggie word for word but the orange “president” is definitely influenced by the greatest rapper of all time.
