One X user noted how the rapper did a 180 on his perspective for Trump over the years.
This is what Waka Flocka said about Trump in 2015 but now after seeing how horrible Joe Biden is and how good Trump was for the black community he is endorsing Trump for President. This is why Trump is doing so well with the black vote. https://t.co/DvuI0v4UCx pic.twitter.com/oXH6F73cbr

Daily Caller reports:
Waka Flocka Flame posted his public support of Trump in the wake of a predicted slide in black voters in favor of President Joe Biden.
The Biden administration has been criticized for alienating black voters, especially those in poor, heavily populated urban areas. Biden’s popularity has dwindled over his handling of the border crisis which has seen illegal migrants flooding the country.
“We need to take care of our community, we need to take care of our black community, we need to open up these schools for mental health,” Caroline Ruff, Black Lives Matter Women of Faith founder, said during a Chicago city council meeting in May.
“We have not gotten anything for our community and we are sick and tired … enough is enough,” Ruff said.
The rapper’s bold show of support follows predictions that black voters might not show up for Biden in the 2024 election.
Donald Trump has received multiple endorsements from famous artists in the black community.
“Rapper YG, who notoriously sang the “FDT” (F**k Donald Trump) song, said the black community is shifting support away from Joe Biden and toward Trump,” WLTReport noted.
The musician made the comments on comedian Theo Von’s This Past Weekend podcast, saying members of the community changed their perspective on Trump.
“Do black people f**k with him more?” Von asked.
“To me it seems like more black guys will mess with Trump because he seems more like connected to the culture a little bit.”
“Hey look, I ain’t gonna lie, the black community was not f***ing with Trump…but when that PPP came out…black people forgave him,” YG responded.
Trump also received and endorsement from Sexyy Red.
President Trump was brought up in their interview when Von asked “Do you think more people are going to support Trump now in the hood or no?”
Red responded “I like Trump.”
She continued “Yeah, they support him in the hood.
So Sexyy Red says she likes Trump. pic.twitter.com/eegeuqO7Yy
