Well, this is it.
America is wrapping up.
Shows over, people.
Rapper Rick Ross visited the White House on Friday as an ambassador for President Obama’s black and Latino youth program — and his court-ordered ankle monitor reportedly went off shortly after the president concluded a speech.
Everybody in the room was like “yo is dat me dawg or you?”
You know, like when you’re in a group and the cellphone beeps and you’re not sure if it’s yours or someone else’s. That’s what Black people are like with ankle monitors.
According to the Associated Press, the “Hood Billionaire” rapper joined fellow artists Alicia Keys, Common, Nicki Minaj, Busta Rhymes, Janelle Monae, Ludacris, Chance the Rapper and others at the White House on Friday, where the group met with the president to discuss the administration’s “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative, which focuses on empowering black and Latino youth.
Yeah, this is an actual thing that happened in real life.
There’s a video of it.
America is serious bidness, muffugguh.
But according to TMZ, Ross’s ankle monitor, which he must wear as a condition of his release on kidnapping and assault charges last summer, beeped loudly shortly after the president concluded a speech.
Ross was arrested in June 2015 on kidnapping, aggravated assault and aggravated battery charges after allegedly pistol-whipping a man who had been doing repair work on his house. The kidnapping charge was added after it was alleged that the man was physically prevented from leaving Ross’ house.
Also, he writes songs exclusively about selling drugs and murdering people. Oh, and about orgies.
Look, this is actually happening.
The President of the United States is promoting this guy as a role model for children.
Like, this is actually happening.
Obama has previously enlisted the help of the music industry to promote the”My Brother’s Keeper” initiative, which aims to provide access to higher education to black and Latino youth. In January, Obama met with rapper Kendrick Lamar in the Oval Office, where the two discussed problems facing inner city youth and the importance of mentorship programs.
Here’s the video of that little thing.
Soon enough, these people are going to get up on top of all these problems, and start acting exactly like Whites, building space ships and shiiiiiieeeeeeeet.
