A J. Cole fan will be receiving a special package from the Dreamville camp. Following a Donald Trump rally in Dayton, Ohio on March 12, a Trump protestor named Thomas DiMassimo attempted to rush the stage before security forced him to the ground, ultimately ripping his Dreamville Records t-shirt.
The 22-year old activist explained his actions in an interview with CNN. "I was thinking that I could get up on stage and take his podium away from him and take his mic away from him and send a message to all people ... that we can be strong, that we can find our strength and we can stand up against Donald Trump and against this new wave he's ushering in of truly just violent white supremacist ideas," he said.
Dreamville Records' president, Ibrahim Hamad, subsequently responded to Thomas DiMassimo over Twitter and promised to send him new, free merchandise for his radical expression.
@Dailyrapfacts @Younglionking7 all good bro, we'll send you a box of Dreamville gear on us. Be safe out there.— Ibrahim H. (@KingOfQueenz) March 13, 2016
The support from Dreamville and gesture follows Cole's performance at President Barack Obama's Democratic National Committee Fundraiser in Texas this past Friday.
