Busta Rhymes Refers to Trump as 'President Agent Orange' During Grammys Performance with A Tribe Called Quest! (Video)

Busta Rhymes joined A Tribe Called Quest and Anderson .Paak on stage for a politically charged performance at the 2017 Grammy Awards held at the Staples Center on Sunday (February 12) in Los Angeles.

The rapper referred to President Trump as “President Agent Orange” during the performance.

The segment started with ATCQ performing their songs “Movin Backwards,” “We the People,” and more. People marched around the arena throughout the performance to represent the groups of people being blocked from coming into the country by Trump’s travel ban.

“I’m not digging the political climate right now,” Busta said while joining in for the performance. “I just wanna thank President Agent Orange for perpetuating all of the evil that you been perpetuating throughout these United States.”

“I want to thank President Agent Orange for the unsuccessful attempt at the Muslim ban,” he added. Watch a clip below.

Anderson .Paak: Best New Artist of Grammys 2017 Countdown!

Our Best New Artist of the 2017 Grammy Awards countdown comes to an end with the multi-talented Anderson .Paak!

Like most of his fellow nominees, the 31-year-old singer-songwriter-rapper-producer has been curating a space for himself in the music world for quite some time. While serving as a drummer for American Idol contestant Haley Reinhart in 2012, Anderson independently released his first album, O.B.E. Vol. 1, under the moniker Breezy Lovejoy.

It wasn’t until 2014 where he went on to release Venice in 2014, under his current stage name. Anderson followed up with Malibu in 2016, his most successful and critically acclaimed album to date, featuring the singles: “The Season / Carry Me,” “Am I Wrong” feat. Schoolboy Q, “Room in Here” feat. Sonyae Elise and The Game, and “Come Down“.

Along with his Best New Artist nom, Anderson is up for Best Urban Contemporary Album for Malibu alongside Beyoncé, Rihanna, KING and Gallant.

Anderson is set to perform with fellow Best New Artist nominee Maren Morris and Alicia Keys at the big show on Sunday (February 12) on CBS. Be sure to tune in – we’ll be live-blogging the entire show as well!
