In a statement, a representative for T.I. said the video is an "unauthorized use" of the track. "The video distorts lyrics from his #1 charting song by misrepresenting the lyrics through text language and distortion of his recorded voice," the statement reads. "It goes without saying, that T.I. would not in any way ever support the divisive policies and destructive propaganda of Trump. The people of our country deserve far better than this."
The video in question originally appeared on Donald Trump's Snapchat story, flashing fabricated lyrics on the screen to mock Joe Biden. "I want yo' body, need yo' body," the track originally goes, while the attack ad reads, "I don't want Joe Biden."
The clip is one of a number of bizarre meme-like edits Trump has shared across social media.
The statement reiterates that T.I. on no level endorses the commercial, and as a result his team will be pursuing legal action. "Be clear, he does not authorize it or consent to the use of his song to falsely suggest any endorsement of President Trump or to attack Joe Biden," the statement continues. "It is sad, but expected, that this President would stoop so low to use his property without authority to manipulate the community. T.I.’s legal team and media partners are already moving expeditiously to block this unauthorized use and set the record straight in no uncertain terms."
In the past, T.I. has indicated he is not a fan of Trump of his MAGA followers. "When you say 'Make America Great Again,' which period are we talking about?" T.I. asked far-right political pundit Candace Owens during a Revolt summit event last year. "The period when women couldn't vote, the period when we were hanging from trees, or the crack era? Which period in America are you trying to make America like again?"
