He’s in a Sunken Place: T.I. Responds to Steve Harvey Saying Rappers Should Respect Donald Trump


A few days ago, in response to Snoop Dogg’s and Bow Wow‘s rants against the president,  Steve Harvey suggested that rappers cower in fear of Donald Trump and show him some respect as the powerful president of this country.

“Where we have to be smart about this, young brothers and the people who are the truth tellers is the way that they will bend it and twist it. Here’s the problem, if something happens do you get brought in as the copycat version, the reason that spurred action? ‘Cuz there’s some idiot that’s sitting at his house that’s willing to carry this out. … And you don’t want to be tied to that,” Harvey said.

Harvey explained that as an artist, Snoop has the right to express himself, though he should  show caution when criticizing the president of the United States.

“The problem with all this that there is an office in this country called the ‘president,’ and you have to respect the office. You really do. Whether you want to or not. You have to respect the office. They got laws. I would hate for anything to come down,” Harvey said.

The radio/TV host then addressed Bow Wow’s tweets, in which the former rapper suggested selling Melania into prostitution.

“You start messing around with this man’s wife — who ain’t in this at all. The hell that comes down with messing with this man’s family, is great. Y’all got to be smart, man,” Harvey said.
