Ludacris' 'Move B*tch' Has Become An Unlikely Anti-Trump Protest Song

And it's got Luda's seal of approval.

MOST POPULAR

Back in 2002, rapper Ludacris released 'Move Bitch' - the tenth track from his second album Word of Mouf. The single peaked at Number 10 in the Billboard Hot 100 charts.

So, really, except for being the rapper's first top ten single, it didn't exactly change the world.

But with time comes wisdom, and a new appreciation for all things that make you want to get drunk and commit a small act of road rage.

And now it feels like the song has found its truest purpose in life. The iconic chorus was deployed, and re-purposed by millions of people over the weekend, who have had enough of Donald-I-look-directly-at-the-sun Trump.

A video tweeted by HipHopDX, currently at over 30,000 retweets with over 63,000 likes, displays a street crammed with hundreds, perhaps thousands, of demonstrators delivering a stirring rendition of 'Move' updated for 2017: 'Move Trump, Get out the way'.

Anti-Trump protesters in Luda's home city of Atlanta deployed the song to accurately fit their cause.

Ludacris, for the record, is totally down.

The rapper was sent footage of the march and posted it on his Instagram with a caption reading "#MoveTrump" and an emoji of a fist held up in solidarity.

Alright, the original chorus is quite problematic. It's a fairly succinct statement of misogyny, while Ludacris threatens to run people over if they refuse to move out the way - which, after the events in Charlottesville, fills you with a sudden unease.

But, still, there's a beauty in simply telling Trump to go away. No swearing, no violence, just move. And uniting together against the greater evil? Always a good thing.
