Underground Texas rapper Renizance recently stirred up controversy with an anti-Donald Trump song called “Trump Dies”.
In a visual for the song, the rapper kidnaps the President… and apparently, it drew the attention of the Secret Service, who paid him a visit.
During a recent interview on the Murder Master Music Show, Renizance described the experience, which he said reminded him of Will Smith’s 1998 thriller Enemy of the State.
“Somebody in L.A. called into the authorities and the authorities in L.A. called into the Secret Service in DC,” he said. “They asked me a whole lot of f*ckin’ questions and if I was crazy enough to do all this sh*t. 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 motherf*ckers was not playing,” Renizance added. “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 alot of stories with laws for Homeland Security. There is 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.”
