This morning, social media was filled with a clip of Jay Z ignoring a question from Donald Trump.
That didn’t last that long as the rapper decided to give his opinion on the matter during a press conference for his Spike TV docuseries TIME: The Kalief Browder Story in which he is executive producing.
He addressed the fact that citizens have to protest and organize.
“More than ever, the people have to come together,” he said. “We have to tell these stories, and we have to organize in a way that we never have before, because that’s the only thing that effects change. I hate to sound like such a cynic. Everything is based on votes, and who you can put in office.”
He later continued.
“We have to organize,” he continued. “I’ve been in these meetings, I’ve spoken with people, I’ve done many things behind the scenes, but most important: We are the power. I’m sure a lot of you guys participated in it, but that display of woman power the other day was so amazing and we saw the effect: That no matter what, no matter who’s in office, we are the people that’s in power.”
Look out the series to be released later this year.
