Rapper T.I. has issued a statement in response to President Donald Trump using his single "Whatever You Like," in a smear ad against political opponent Joe Biden.
"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," he said in a statement per the Miami Herald.
"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," the statement continues. "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."
The video has since been removed from Youtube.
