Rick Ross threatened to kill the President. So did Big Sean. But Latino rapper Renizance was hunted down by the Secret Service for his highly-detailed assassination fantasy, ‘Trump Dies’.
Aside from Kanye West, the rap community has been virulently anti-Trump. That is coming out in the music, though rapper Renizance may have gone too far. Just this past week, the Fort Worth, Texas-based rapper received a threatening interrogation from Secret Service officials over his recent release, ‘Trump Dies’.
The track offers a detailed plot to capture and kill Donald Trump.
Plenty of artists (and people) a solidly anti-Trump. And songs like ‘Fuck Donald Trump’ by YG and Nipsey Hussle are now gaining nationwide airplay. But ‘Trump Dies’ takes things to an entirely new level, and goes far beyond a simple death threat. Instead, Renizance outlines a fairly detailed kidnapping plan, and even cites a drug cartel bounty of $100 million on Trump’s head.
According to Renizance, the track was ripped down from YouTube before being re-uploaded. It starts out with a now-famous anti-Mexican ‘rapist’ speech by Donald Trump, which segues into Renizance plotting the assassination.
Here’s a sampling of the lyrics.
“Find the city he’s gonna be in
Hop in my ride and I’m on the freeway
Got connects in Chitown so I don’t need
To take straps I get ’em off my people
Hot 30, I-57, I make it there in just 12 hours
Call Pablo, tell him what I need
Snatch his ass at his Trump Tower
Know someone who gives me his location
Even knows where his limo driver stay in
Got the scoop on every time of day
that I can snatch his ass with no hesitation
Spot his fucking limousine driver
catch him when he ain’t thinking ’bout it
Roll up on him with a fucking Uzi
Tell him to hit the ground before I fuckin’ shoot him
Take his outfit take his iPhone
Give a fuck to get in my dome
Probably snitch if I let him loose
So I had to leave his fuckin’ mind blown
Call my homie to dump the evidence
To clean up all the blood and excrement
On my way to get Trump before his pussy ass becomes President
Got a plug because my uncle works for the Sinaloa Cartel
He said if I bring him Donald Trump they got $100 mil plus a hotel”
“Even to try to attempt something like that you are a dumb ass.”
Enter the Secret Service, which actually chased down the rapper in his hometown of Fort Worth and detained him at his home. Exactly what made the Secret Service take this threat seriously is unknown, though repeated reference to the Sinaloa Drug Cartel and the $100 million bounty may have generated concern.
The rapper was secured for several hours of intense questioning, but not held further or incarcerated.
Here’s how Renizance described that meeting in an interview on the Murder Master Music Show (check out the full clip here).
“They asked me a whole lot of fuckin’ questions and if I was crazy enough to do all this shit. At the end of the interview, they asked me if I had ever thought of really going through with harming the President. Even to try to attempt something like that you are a dumb ass.
I told them, ‘Honestly, I’m not stupid enough to try to do that.’ I don’t like the guy and it is basically artistic expression. I was expressing myself through art. That’s all it was and these mutha fuckaz was not playing. They really wanted to know everything about me.
“At the very beginning the first thing that was running through my mind was the movie Enemy of the State with Will Smith. Initially I didn’t know what was about to go down. You read a lot of stories with laws for Homeland Security. There are laws where they can detain you indefinitely as long as they consider you a threat to National Security. That was the first thing that was crossing my mind.
I met up with them and luckily for me it didn’t turn out that way. They understood that I was just an artist expressing myself. I’m glad for the fact that it didn’t go any further.”
