Common Talks New Album 'Black America Again' & Donald Trump's Support of 'Racist Ideals'
Common is opening up about the political messages on his new album Black America Again.
The 44-year-old Grammy and Oscar-winning rapper addresses racism, slavery, police brutality, and more hot button issues.
He also recently opened up about the current Presidential Election.
“[Donald Trump] supports some of the racist ideals that this country does have and we’ve got to acknowledge that,” Common told CNN. “And I don’t think it’s a bad thing that this is brought out…because we need to know it exists and stop acting like it doesn’t and not be fooled because President Obama was in office.”
As for Hillary Clinton, Common said, “If she even thinks about going to a second term and she doesn’t do the things that we want, then we make sure that she’s not a president again. But if you allow Donald Trump to get into office then it’s going to be a really tough time in this country.”
