As its title suggests, Ty Dolla $ign’s Campaign project takes on the 2016 presidential election as well as the general political landscape. The Los Angeles rapper has become increasingly vocal about the importance of the upcoming election, and has even asked his fans to pledge to register to vote; however, as anyone who’s heard Campaign can tell you, Ty isn’t exactly thrilled with either candidates.

“Everybody seems to be saying, ‘Stay at home, don't vote because we have two that are both boof as f--k,’” he told Billboard. “But we have one that’s more boof. So I want to encourage everyone to vote so that we don't end up with a guy that says he's going to f---ing ban fucking Mexicans for coming out here and build a wall and make them pay for it… Would you rather have a president hiding their emails and, um, lying about other things. Or, uh, a f---ing racist? I think it’s an easy call even though both of them are f---ing boof like I said.”

Ty’s disapproval of both candidates is something very common among today’s voters, as both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have the lowest favorability ratings ever; however, Ty is urging his fans to participate in the election and have their voices heard, even if that means choosing the lesser of two evils.

Ty also shares his thoughts on the North Carolina protests following the death of Keith Lamont Scott, as well as the Oklahoma police officer who was charged with manslaughter in the death of Terence Crutcher. You can read the full Q&A at Billboard’s website.
