T.I. is understandably upset that his “Whatever You Like” track was used for as political gain by Donald Trump against Joe Biden.
This online news platform understands that Donald Trump’s campaign team re-edited T.I.’s 2008 hit track “Whatever You Like” for an anti-Biden campaign on Tuesday, and now the rapper has expressed his perception of it.
According to a statement released by a representative for T.I. the video is an “unauthorized use” of the track.
“The video distorts lyrics from his #1 charting song by misrepresenting the lyrics through text language and distortion of his recorded voice,” the statement reads. “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.”
T.I.’s team issued a statement to Hot New Hip Hop saying the edited video misrepresented T.I’s lyrics. In the Snapchat video, the lyrics said, “I don’t want Joe Biden, need Joe Biden, as long as you’ve got me you don’t need Joe Biden,” as the melody played.

“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,” said a rep for T.I. “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.
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!”
Some may say it was a questionable move on Trump’s part considering T.I.’s expressed distaste for Trump. However, Donald Trump is yet to respond as at the time of filing this report.
