New York City’s Time Square is flooded with people chanting “U.S.A.” in the streets. People are singing, playing the trumpet, blasting their boomboxes, clapping, ringing bells and cheering. Cries of joy can be heard in every corner of the United States — apparently, this is sound when Donald Trump loses the 2020 presidential election and Joe Biden wins.
Not only did Biden break a record with over 70 million votes, but Kamala Harris also made history when she became the first Black/Indian-American woman vice-president.
The news broke on Saturday (November 7) and sent Twitter into a frenzy. Numerous Hip Hop/R&B artists took to the social media platform to celebrate the projected victory. A Tribe Called Quest’s Q-Tip shared a video of the scene in Harlem, while Paul Wall showed off his diamond-studded Grillz with the caption, “Straight Cheesin.”
Meanwhile, Juicy J offered Trump a little of his Wildflower weed strain to help ease the stress, Kid Cudi issued a “fuck yeah Joe” and Lupe Fiasco simply wanted to know when Trump’s trial is going to begin.
As millions of Americans continue to rejoice across the country, check out celebratory tweets from Offset, “FTD (Fuck Donald Trump)” rapper YG, Erykah Badu, Alicia Keys and more below.
