Yes, there is a world of America First focused rap. And Tampa’s Forgiato Blow is quickly becoming the top dog of MAGA RAP, along with frequent collaborators Bryson Gray and J360.

If you are a Trump supporter, odds are that you have seen or heard one of Forgiato Blow’s songs, even if you wouldn’t normally find yourself listening to rap or hip-hop. His music has become a fixture at Trump rallies and protests against election fraud since last November.
From millennials to boomers, I have seen dozens of people playing his songs on repeat during flag waves, boat parades and Trump caravans throughout the state of Florida, hell even across America.
And while the 32-year old Florida native enjoyed success before proudly proclaiming his support for President Trump, his star has skyrocketed since he has recorded a number of songs in support of Trump and the constitutional principles that make America the greatest nation to ever exist.
But with his foray into political raps that stand up for America and President Trump, Forgiato Blow is getting the FAKE NEWS treatment from repeat offenders like CNN’s Don Lemon. Just this past weekend at CPAC, Blow, Bryson Gray and J360 filmed a music video for his new song “Patriot Sweep”, which included a cameo from Trump’s longtime confidante Roger Stone.
Clips of Stone dancing as Forgiato performed in front of a huge Truck emblazoned with Trump’s face on Rambo’s body quickly went viral, catching the ire of miserable liberals who couldn’t stand seeing Stone have fun or understand that a rapper could support patriotism and President Trump.
CNN’s Don Lemon claimed the song “glorifies” the illegal insurrection at the capitol on January 6th. Stone defended the rapper in an op-ed with our friends at The Gateway Pundit, saying the following.
Now the CNN propagandists Don Lemon and Donie O’Sullivan have attacked me again claiming that I was dancing at CPAC to a rap song the lyrics of which ” glorifies” the illegal assault on the Capitol on January 6th.
Not one to back down, Forgiato also took aim at CNN in an exclusive quote to the Central Florida Post, calling out CNN.
The song “Patriot Sweep” is about the capital protest on Jan 6 and how Patriots are treated differently than other protesters. My intent was to show that the media paints Patriots in a bad light yet the Antifa & BLM protesters in Oregon took over an entire city for months holding the downtown area hostage and the media praises their courage and law enforcement did nothing.
The line currently being dissected by mainstream news- CNN and others- has been shortened in an attempt to make it seem like I am glorifying the Jan 6 protest, which I absolutely am not doing.
The whole line states “the Fed’s did a sweep they were knocking at the front door – Patriots pulling up knocking at the capital”. What I meant by this is the Feds did a sweep and arrested a number of people directly for the event on Jan 6. Yet most Patriots were peacefully “knocking” outside the doors of the capital.
I repeated numerous times throughout the song that we came to peacefully protest – my exact words were ” we came to dc to spread peace”.
The fact that the media has clipped my song altering the meaning and that CNN contacted me trying to say I glorified the insurrection only proves that my next line is totally accurate, “media painting pictures- painting us like criminals”.
Any alternative interpretation of lyrics that I wrote is both dishonest, duplicitous and politically motivated.
And of course, he’s spot on. The media is twisting the lyrics of his song in order to spread fake news, yet they celebrated numerous rap videos where Trump was assassinated and Trump supporters were brutally beaten.
As Blow previously stated in his interview with Koncrete, money and success are important to him, but spending time with his fans and delivering them music that they love is a stronger motivator.
Forgiato Blow’s devotion to money and success is seen on every aspect of him — from the Richie Rich tattoo on his face to the number of music videos, singles, and albums he releases. But he’s humble enough to state he would be happy to only have 1,000 fans and to only receive $100 a year if that means his fans will connect with his music.
With his rise in the world of MAGA rap, which is his for the taking, Blow seems to have found the best of both worlds. He’s scoring millions of views on YouTube, making bank…. and most importantly, has found himself an untapped market of devoted and loyal fans.
Forgiato Blow knows just exactly what he’s doing. Who said you couldn’t use rap to fight for our constitution and put America First? Even if they did, that wouldn’t matter.
Blow’s on his own flow and nobody can stop him.
