Cipha Sounds Explains Disinterest In Presidential Election: “It’s All Nonsense”
Election Day finally arrived Tuesday (Nov. 8), bringing to a near end the chapter of one monumental presidency before turning the page of another. While we still have a few more hours before we find out the results, Roc Nation’s Cipha Sounds shared with VIBE Viva his thoughts on the general election, the importance of voting and the significance of him creating a home out of the priceless New York City weekends at the 40/40 Club.
The New York native’s career has taken him from the DJ booth over at Hot 97 to his new home at the legendary record label Jay Z built from the ground up. Sounds has also been making his mark on the comedy scene with stand-ups and shows “Don’t Get Gassed” and “Take It Personal,” even his TIDAL show, “No Small Talk.” The comedian kicked off his new DJ residency at the 40/40 club Friday (Nov. 4) with the “Get Out The Vote” afterparty, a continued celebration for Jay Z and Beyonce’s official endorsement of Democratic presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton.
Ironically, Sounds is less interested in the candidates and more pressed about those exercising their right to vote. I don’t give a s**t. To me it’s all nonsense,” he said about the election.”It’s probably the worst day to say this, but honestly, I feel like the world is gonna go on fine after Tuesday.”
