“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,” the rapper tweeted, along with a photo of himself with Trump. “He listened to what we had to say today and assured he will and can get it done.”
The meeting between the president and the rapper took place at the Trump National Doral Miami resort.
As a business mogul, Trump was an icon in hip-hop music for more than three decades and rappers, including Lil Wayne, hailed his wealth and power in hundreds of lyrics. It was only after winning the presidential election in 2006 that Trump became a target of disdain by many celebrities, including the the hip-hop community.
Lil Wayne, who name dropped Trump in songs like “Racks on Racks,” rapping, “get money like Donald Trump,” voiced support for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in 2016. He did not indicate whether he is voting for Trump in this year’s election.
Lil Wayne, following in the footsteps of Kanye and 50 Cent, just endorsed President Trump.
Rappers are now Republicans.

TRUMP is getting all the RAPPERS on board. These Rappers do have the ear of the streets, don't get it twisted. They can move votes in masses.
