On Tuesday night (Dec. 12), Doug Jones took the W for Alabama Senate over Republican Roy Moore, which he instantly became the state’s first Democratic senator in 25 years. Now, a few members of the rap community could not wait to put their 2-3 cents in.
Run The Jewels’ rapper El-P who’s always been one to express his political views took to Twitter posting “phew! close call on the ol “pedophile for senate” thing, eh? yeah. reeeeeallly close,” referencing the accusations Moore’s faced over these last several weeks. Of Coarse T.I chimed in who lives not too far from Alabama, congratulated the people of Alabama for making what he believes to be the right decision. He also is one known to express his political views and also post exactly what he feels and took to the social tables to post “Proud of my neighbors in Ala. Power to the People!!!! Right on to the Real. #USorELSE.” 2 Chainz and Big Boi reacted to the news, but kept much to themselves.
