Isaac Hayes III (left) says rap legend Snoop Dogg is having second thoughts about Joe Biden.
In an interview with Rolling Out‘s “A.M. Wake-Up Call,” Hayes discussed the abandonment of the Democratic Party by some of hip-hop’s elite.
Hayes was disappointed that rap legend Ice Cube is apparently supporting President Donald Trump in the upcoming election.
“I was disappointed that Ice Cube would have a conversation with the Trump campaign. I’m not opposed to anyone trying to bring about change. The thing that concerns me is the timing and who you are talking to. The result was that the Trump campaign used Ice Cube to reach out to Black men. It’s not the move at the right time.”
When asked what message he had for Ice Cube, Hayes said:
“My message to Ice Cube would have been that Trump is different. He’s radioactive. He’ll tank your business. You can’t align yourself with this man when he won’t denounce White supremacy. He says racist things. He stokes division between the Black community and the police. I would have told Cube that this isn’t the guy to have a conversation with. [With] everything that Trump has in his plan he can make a change now. He’s dangling change like a carrot to Black people for votes. We have to remove this guy from the office and start fresh.”
Hayes said he spoke with Snoop Dogg, who expressed his concern about Biden’s plans for Black America.
“Snoop Dogg and I spoke, and he expressed why there is a concern with the Biden campaign,” Hayes said. “I had to push back and let him understand that we’re trying to get this racist demigod out of office. I know people who have stood in line for 11 hours to vote.”
