JOHN Legend shaded everyone’s “former favorite rappers” at the Joe Biden rally tonight following Lil Wayne and several other hip-hop artists’ endorsement of Donald Trump.
The politically active singer slammed those backing the president – which also include Ice Cube and 50 Cent as forming a “supergroup” called “the sunken place.”
The politically active singer sat down at his signature instrument, the piano, at the Philadelphia rally for the former Vice President one night before the 2020 United States election.
“Some of your former favorite rappers have been taken in by these lies,” he said at the beginning of his heartfelt speech.
John, 41, continued: “I think they’ve even formed a new supergroup, it’s called The Sunken Place.
“But Trump’s plan for black folks is nothing but fool’s gold. Because you can’t bank on a word he says.
“Ask the student of Trump University. Ask the contractors he stiffed. Ask all the black and brown Americans who are dying from this virus and losing jobs.
“The president is not strong, he’s a coward. And his career in business and in government has been failure after failure after failure.”
The All Of Me crooner then talked about how Joe Biden is the president people can “trust” as he urged citizens to vote for the Democratic candidate.
Both The Voice coach and his wife, Chrissy Teigen, 34, have been highly critical of Donald Trump and current government operations.
John’s rally speech – which comes on the eve of the long-awaited presidential election – comes one day after Lil Wayne met with Trump in Miami.
In the snap, both smiled and posed with thumbs up, standing in front of three American flags.
“Just had a great meeting with @realdonaldtrump @potus 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,” the Lollipop rapper tweeted on Sunday.
The Trump administration’s Platinum Plan aims at investing $500 million into black communities and winning support from them.
It was developed with the help of rapper Ice Cube and claims to expand economic initiatives in the black community, including making Juneteenth a federal holiday and prosecuting the Antifa and Ku Klux Klan as terrorist groups.
Last week, rapper 50 Cent stated that he would get behind Trump because he did not want to become “20 Cent” under Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s tax plan that proposes to raise taxes on the rich.
However, 50 Cent then appeared to backtrack on his pro-Trump stance, tweeting, “f*** Donald Trump. I never liked him.”
Rapper Kanye West was the first major artist in the genre to voice support for Trump and met with him in the Oval Office in 2018.
However, West ended up making a long-shot bid for president.
