Former President Donald Trump is a hit with rap fans after a rapper with an X account generated a rap featuring the 45th president’s voice as created by artificial intelligence.
The rap song “First Day Out” humorously references Trump’s mug shot and criminal charges while also addressing the Clintons and the “radical left,” according to a report by Forbes magazine.
Video posted to X by the rap artist Hi-Rez has been viewed 2.9 million times by Wednesday.
The irreverent hit has rocketed to the second spot on iTunes’ list of the top 100 Hip-Hop and Rap songs.
“First Day Out” was crafted by rapper Hi-Rez and is designed to give the impression that Trump penned a rap shortly after facing charges. An arrested man raging against the politics behind his arrest is true rap fodder.
The lyrics touch upon various topics, including the Fulton County district attorney, with lines such as “acting silly” and the assertion that the former president “won’t see inside a cell.”
The song mentions Trump’s viral mug shot with lines like “My mugshot is worth a billi / Sold some merch and made a milli” and hints at his innocence with “I am not who they’re after.”
Hi-Rez released the song under the pseudonym “Trump the Don” on various streaming platforms and social media last Friday.
The song’s artwork features a monochromatic version of Trump’s mug shot, accentuated with a parental advisory sticker and a black rectangle obscuring the former president’s eyes.
Right-wing commentator Benny Johnson, who receives a mention in the song, uploaded a YouTube video endorsing “First Day Out,” describing it as a “banger, ladies and gentlemen.”
Johnson exulted in being name-dropped in a chart-topping MAGA hit, something he thought he would never see in his career.
Other conservative personalities, such as Candace Owens, praised the song as “absolutely genius” and even danced to its rhythm on her YouTube channel. Donald Trump Jr. also weighed in, finding the song “hilarious.”
Hi-Rez unveiled “First Day Out” shortly after Trump’s arrest at a Fulton County Jail.
Trump was indicted on 13 counts related to his attempts to challenge the 2020 presidential election results. His mug shot, released soon after the arrest, became a focal point on social media.
Alongside Trump, 18 co-defendants, including Rudy Giuliani and former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, were charged and indicted.
