For Discussion: Is Flo Rida a Sellout for Agreeing To Perform At Trump’s Inauguration for $1 Million?

Rapper/Pop Artist Flo Rida agreeing to perform at Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration has become a hot debate on social media. This comes as a surprise for many being that he had previously pulled out of Donald’s Miss USA pageant in 2015 over Trump’s offensive comments about Mexicans. He also is supposed to be a huge fan of the Obamas  and he even posted a pic of Barack Obama and Michelle Obama on Jan. 10, referring to them as a “power couple”.  Flo Rida has never openly denounced the President-elect but it should be noted that the singer was hit with $1.2 million in tax liens in 2014, which may have played a part in his decision. Many are calling Flo Rida a sellout for agreeing to perform for Donald Trump while others say he would be a fool if he didn’t! We’d like to know what do YOU think about it? Is Flo Rida selling his soul or is he should he just ignore his naysayers and, as DJ Khaled says, “secure the bag”? Let us know!
