Protesters at a Donald Trump rally in Chicago clashed with supporters of the GOP front-runner, which eventually caused organizers to call off the event on Friday (March 12). However, hip-hop played a major role at the rally, including one protester holding up a Metro Boomin sign.
Although the Trump rally was postponed, several violent exchanges broke out between some of the thousands of supporters and protesters in attendance. Some reciting Kendrick Lamar’s song “Alright” as well as lyrics from Crime Mob’s “Knuck If You Buck,” before they started chanting, “F— Donald Trump.”
But the most amusing (or complementary?) was one protester holding up a sign that read, “Metro Boomin Doesn’t Trust Trump.”
Of course, if you are a fan of Future you should know where that line comes from. It’s the Metro Boomin’s drop recently heard on Kanye West’s “Father Stretch My Hands Part 1.” The tag features Future saying, “If young metro don’t trust you I’m gonna shoot you.” The quote has also generated hundreds of memes on social media as well.
Metro Boomin seems pleased with it as he shared it on his Instagram page.
It’s good to see people express their right of Freedom of Assembly (often referred to as “Freedom to protest”). But let’s not get violent at these rallies. No one needs to get battered and bruised over Donald Trump’s incendiary rhetoric.
Check out the videos below and ABC News’ report of some of the violence that’s been occurring at several Donald Trump’s rallies.

The organized group of people, many of them thugs, who shut down our First Amendment rights in Chicago, have totally energized America!
