DaBaby backs Donald Trump after pardoning Kodak Black
With Donald Trump maybe plans another presidential race in 2024, the business mogul may have a rapper to back him up: DaBaby. Recently, the North Carolina rapper revealed his support for Trump because he pardoned Kodak Black.
In an interview with Full send podcastwhich premiered Friday, July 22 on YouTube, DaBaby shared his thoughts on Kanye West trying to be president in 2020. The “Rockstar” rapper said he would have voted for ‘Ye because “he’s gangsta.”
When the show’s co-host Kyle Forgeard asked DaBaby if he fucks with Donald Trump, he replied, “Do I fuck with Trump? Now hell yeah,” in the 54th minute in the video below.
Forgeard then asked him, “What made you fuck with him?” The Billion Dollar Entertainment boss replied, “Trump is a gangsta.”
“Nigga let Kodak out,” he added, referring to Trump’s commutation of Kodak Black’s prison sentence during his final days in office in January 2021.
But DaBaby may have an ulterior motive for supporting Trump now. The 30-year-old rapper hopes to get his cousin out of jail if he becomes president in 2024.
“I need him to get my cousin out…yeah California,” he said. “If you need a new Trump campaign partner when you get back, holla on me, man. I mean, I can trade it and get my cousin out for sure. He is a political prisoner.
DaBaby isn’t the only rapper to back Donald Trump in the past. Rappers like 50 Cent, Lil Pump, Asian Doll and more have championed the businessman during his 2020 presidential run.
