The vast majority of artists in the rap community have been outspoken against Trump but one rapper is still willing to perform at Trump's inaugural ball.

Riff Raff today revealed he would do the show for US $50,000 (NZ $70,000).

*Warning: This clip contains offensive language:

Talking to TMZ, he explained his reasoning by saying: "I'm in America and I was born in America and I love money. So why wouldn't I?"

"I've had enough money taken away from me by the government, why shouldn't I perform?" he said.

He went on to add that he doesn't care if the president is a "pack of Starbursts", as long as he doesn't have to pay so much tax, because he'd rather spend that money on "a Lambo [Lamborghini] a year".
