Shyne has unloaded a public campaign to get President Barack Obama’s attention, asking the head of state to help fight the genocide in Chicago.
In a series of “Dear Obama” tweets, Shyne Po pleaded for the president to take action and even asked if he would consider leaning on rap mogul Jay-Z for a favor.
“Dear @BarackObama there has to be something the former US senator from Chicago can do for his former constituents! The genocide must stop,” he tweeted Sunday (January 13).
“Dear @BarackObama u must declare a state of emergency in Chicago! One of those bodies could’ve been you as a teenager! U now have the power”
“At least 18 murdered in Chicago within the first 10 days of the year — RT http://rt.com/usa/news/18-chicago-year-murder-812/ … @barackobama do something now!”
“Dear @BarackObama call Jay-z to fly his private plane Down to Chicago & u fly yours the same way u called in the stars to win Ohio#help”
“@barackobama I forgot u weren’t & impoverished inner city kid! U grew up in Kansas & Hawaii! U only play the ghetto card come election time!”
“My comrades in Chiraq need opportunity! They need education & hope! @barackobama declare a war on poverty! Declare a war on lackof education” (Shyne’s Twitter)
