John Legend Bestows Mocking New Name On Donald Trump-Supporting Rappers

John Legend on Monday threw shade at rap musicians who have declared their support for President Donald Trump in the 2020 election — even suggesting a name for their supergroup.

The musician, speaking at a drive-in rally in Philadelphia for Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris, told fans that “some of your former favorite rappers have been taken in” by Trump’s lies.

Lil Wayne and Lil Pump endorsed Trump in recent days. Rapper 50 Cent, meanwhile, backpedaled on his public support of the president following a backlash.

“I think they even founded a new supergroup, it’s called the Sunken Place,” Legend quipped, apparently referring to the scene of the same name in the Jordan Peele-directed movie “Get Out.”

Legend warned people not to be suckered by Trump’s promises.

“You can’t bank on a word he says,” the singer said. “Ask the students of Trump University. Ask all of the contractors he stiffed. Ask the people his charity were supposed to help before it was shut down for being a fraud. Ask all the Black and brown Americans who are dying from this virus and losing their jobs under his watch.”

“The president isn’t strong. He’s a coward,” continued Legend. “And his career in business and in government has been failure after failure after failure.”
