The hip-hop community is lashing out at Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling, who was identified on audio recording by TMZ as telling his girlfriend not to bring black people to basketball games.

Within the past day, rappers like Snoop Dogg, Lil Wayne, Meek Mill and Game have posted heated responses to Sterling’s comments online (watch below). President Barack Obama even chimed in, calling the reported comments "incredibly offensive racist statements" during a news conference on Sunday with Malaysia’s prime minister.
“If I was a Clipper fan, I wouldn’t be one anymore. It’s that simple,” says Lil Wayne, an avid sports fan. But if I was a Clipper player, a current Clipper player, you wouldn’t see me on the court anymore in that uniform.”
The NBA is currently investigating the recording posted on TMZ, according to the Associated Press.
