T.I. Responds to Trump Repurposing “Whatever You Like” for Anti-Joe Biden Ad

In the ad that has been shared on social media, Trump’s campaign used a parody video posted below. The video uses T.I.’s 2008 song “Whatever You Like” but changes the lyrics Instead of T.I.’s lyrics, “I want your body, need yo’ body. Long as you got me you won’t need nobody,” the video changes them to, “I don’t want Joe Biden, need Joe Biden. Long as you’ve got me you don’t need Joe Biden.”

The statement reads in part, “The video distorts lyrics from his #1 charting song by misrepresenting the lyrics through text language and distortion of his recorded voice. It goes without saying, that T.I. would not in any way ever support the divisive policies and destructive propaganda of Trump. The people of our country deserve far better than this.”


(According to HotNewHipHop),


Consequently, Tip’s team plans to take legal action.


“Trump and his team (out of desperation for his campaign) have circulated a campaign video post throughout social media that includes the unauthorized use of T.I.’s song “Whatever You Like,” along with edited images of him and Joe Biden. The video distorts lyrics from his #1 charting song by misrepresenting the lyrics through text language and distortion of his recorded voice," said a representative for the rapper.


"It goes without saying, that T.I. would not in any way ever support the divisive policies and destructive propaganda of Trump. The people of our country deserve far better than this.


Be clear, he does not authorize it or consent to the use of his song to falsely suggest any endorsement of President Trump or to attack Joe Biden. It is sad, but expected, that this President would stoop so low to use his property without authority to manipulate the community. T.I.’s legal team and media partners are already moving Expeditiously to block this unauthorized use and set the record straight in no uncertain terms!
