Plies, Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Brag, president, vice president

Plies Implores The President and Vice President To ‘Muthaf—-n’ Brag’

Did he have a point?

Rapper Plies had some time to get things off his chest — and the target was President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris. 

The “Shawty” rapper jumped on social media to advise on how to brag. The Grammy-nominated artist gave the elected officials their flowers for over two minutes and pointed out all the good the duo had done during their first term.

“Cause I’m sick of it…can somebody teach y’all how to muthafuckin’ brag,” he said while sitting in a sunlit vehicle. 

“[Expletive] stock market doing way better under y’all than it did under them! Jobs doing way better under y’all than it did under them!”

He pointed out how gas prices and inflation are dropping and questioned why the two are so humble about it. There are some facts behind his rant. 

The Federal Reserve announced on Jan. 31 that keeping interest rates at their current levels may show a steady decline in inflation. The target rate has remained at 5.25% to 5.5% since summer 2023. Specialists believe the high rates have assisted in inflation rates dropping. “The progress I have noted on inflation, combined with the data in hand on economic and financial conditions and my outlook, has made me more confident than I have been since 2021 that inflation is on a path to 2%,” Reserve Governor Christopher Waller said. 

Plies, whose real name is Algernod Lanier Washington, has used his platform to call out political issues while sitting in his car since the height of the pandemic.

After the Kansas City Chiefs secured their fourth trip to the Super Bowl on Jan. 28, the outspoken rapper pointed out how “MAGA” was posting conspiracy theories about Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce’s relationship.

“But The Chiefs Have Been In The Last 4 Outta 5 Super Bowls,” he wrote on Instagram with two laughing emojis. “When Will It Stop!! 🤣 #Plies”

When the failed presidential candidate and South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott endorsed Donald Trump, Plies posted a clip of Scott telling Trump, “I just love you,” and said he would label supporters as Tim Scott moving forward.

While he continues to push for Biden and Harris, some fans jumped into the comment section saying the latter. One Twitter user said the Biden administration has “nothing to brag about,” another compared Plies to Breakfast Club host Charlamagne Tha God. “Charlamagne and plies can’t be trusted. They are paid democrat ops,” @merkyou81 wrote.
