Donald Trump with his presidential campaign.Though he has no formal role in the campaign, McFarland has reportedly been part of Trump’s effort to appeal to black voters, helping to connect the Republican hopeful with rappers on at least two occasions including a public appearance from Sheff G and Sleepy Hallow at Trump’s recent campaign rally in the Bronx.He also previously arranged a meeting with Detroit rappers Icewear Vezzo and Peezy last month, according to Rolling Stone.It comes after McFarland recently shared a picture of himself with the former US president on his Instagram page with the caption: “Pres’ birthday featuring your new cabinet.”A post shared by Billy McFarland (@pyrtbilly)Trump has previously been backed by rappers including Kanye West and more recently Snoop Dogg who said earlier this year, he has “nothing but love and respect” for the former president.Despite that, according to a Pew Research survey published in May, 77 per cent of black voters prefer Joe Biden, with only 18 per cent favouring Trump.Elsewhere, pre-sale tickets to Fyre Festival 2 – the second version of the disgraced music festival – previously sold out despite the fact that the festival has no lineup, venue, or dates lined up for the event.First developed by McFarland seven years ago, the botched festival Fyre Fest was originally set to run over two weekends on a private beach in the Bahamas but was revealed to be fraudulent once punters arrived on the scene, with inadequate conditions and a lack of food and water.
