Atlanta, GA – Recently, the Revolt Summit held a panel that discussed hip-hop and politics, and found a variety of people on the panel like rappers T.I., Killer Mike, Trump supporter Candace Owens, and more.
While on the panel, the discussion turned to the “Make America Great Again” slogan and an angry group led by T.I. began targeting Candace Owens.
Initially Owens stated that she wanted to make Black America great.
While raising his voice and using profanity, T.I. insisted that Owens explain, “Which period was America great that we’re trying to replicate?”
Killer Mike said America was great 7 years after the Civil War.

TSR STAFF: Christina C! @cdelafresh ____ Whew! #TI pulled a full-court press on #CandaceOwens at the #RevoltSummit where the two participated in a panel discussion on “Hip Hop & Politics.” ____ The panel, which was moderated by #JeffJohnson, was discussing the “Make America Great Again” slogan when Tip asked Candace directly, “Which period was America great that we’re trying to replicate?” ____ T.I. listed several moments in America’s history including segregation and the denial of a woman’s right to vote to point out that there was never a time in which America was great for people of color and women. ____ Candace began her response to TI’s question with, “Here’s the thing you guys are forgetting…slavery was all over the world.” The crowd seemingly did not-click the link in our bio to read more.

Given the success he has found in his life in America, T.I. might want to consider if would have been afforded similar opportunities in another nation overseas.
