DETROIT, MI - In the battle for control of the White House, former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton is desperate to secure the often vital black vote. But one obstacle has eluded her in her quest to resonate with the African American community – the lack of a rapper endorsement.

African Americans make up approximately 13% of the U.S. population, and 100% of the rappers that publically endorse political candidates. In order to convince the delegates at the Democratic National Convention that she has the best chance of winning the General Election in November, she needs to secure the endorsement of a rapper, preferably one with hot bars.

Democratic rival Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has already secured the endorsement of Atlanta-based rapper Killer Mike. Killer Mike has criticized Clinton in the press for lack of street cred and pandering to the wealthy elite, while praising Sanders’ involvement in the Civil Rights movement. This endorsement led to Sanders winning primaries in Oklahoma, Colorado, Vermont, New Hampshire, Minnesota, Maine, Nebraska, Kansas, and Michigan.

“Look, if Clinton is serious about becoming President, she needs a solid rapper endorsement,” says Afrika Mustapha Jenkins, a hip-hop historian and professor of African American studies at the University of Texas at El Paso. “President Obama was endorsed by Jay-Z and Ludacris. He won both elections. Al Gore and John Kerry didn’t get endorsed, and didn’t get elected.”

Even controversial Republican candidate Donald Trump has managed to gain support from the hip-hop community. Famed rapper and G-Unit leader Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson recently posted a picture of himself and Trump on Instagram, giving his endorsement to the real estate billionaire. Many other non-satirical news outlets have begun referring to Trump as the “50 Cent of politics.”
