Watch Protesters Tweak Ludacris' 2001 Song 'Move B----' to Rally Against Donald Trump

With the United States becoming more and more divided by the day due to racial tension over the deadly rally by neo-Nazis and alt-right sympathizers in Charlottesville, Virginia last week, protesters in Atlanta took a stand on Saturday (Aug. 19) to combat the hate. During a rally fueled by disdain for President Trump's seeming embrace of some of the white nationalists who participated in the Virginia "Unite the Right" march, protesters in the ATL rewrote the hook to Ludacris' 2001 single "Move B----" to fit their mission statement. 

In unison, the protestors began their boisterous chant of "Move Trump. Get out of the way," as part of their rallying cry. Ludacris caught wind of their demonstration and posted the video on his Instagram. The caption read "#MoveTrump," with a black emoji fist at the end. 

Recently, a number of hip-hop artists have vocalized their disdain for the on-going protests, especially the Charlottesville gathering. After Trump provided a shaky response to the horrific incident that took place, T.I. delivered a scathing response. 

“That’s exactly what I expect from a sucker. You know, cowards throw stones and hide their hands,” he told TMZ last week. "So earlier, you know, they applied pressure and made him denounce his white supremacy homeboys and his neo-Nazi partners, and after bipartisan pressure he denounced them, but I’m sure there was a phone call or some sort of covert meeting with them, saying, ‘What the f*ck do you think you’re doing? This is not what we elected you for!’ and then he had to come back and reverse.”
