With at least three unique hip-hop songs having been inspired by the anti-Biden cheer “Let’s Go Brandon,” the phrase occupied the five top spots on iTunes’ top-10 rap and hip-hop downloads this week while also dominating the top-10 overall downloads.

Three of those were remixes of a Loza Alexander song that has enjoyed a weeks-long run on the charts.
But a track recently released by conservative, Christian rapper Bryson Gray has risen to No. 1, even after being banned by TikTok, YouTube and Instagram—a remarkable feat for a song that contains no profanity—the New York Post reported.
YouTube has banned “Let’s Go Brandon” song from YouTube due to “medical information”. What medical misinformation is in the song? Whoa. pic.twitter.com/W8sCcyH4IM

Gray told the Post that he believes the reason for his song’s success is because of the ban itself.
“If you read guidelines for social media sites now, the guidelines themselves are against conservatism,” he said.
“… Cancel culture doesn’t work anymore,” Gray continued. “It only works on people who are scared… all it does is help me out. Thanks, YouTube!”
Gray has previously garnered the attention of publications like the far-Left New Yorker magazine, which noted that his grandmother was a member of the radical leftist Black Panthers.
The Greensboro, NC, native has opened for rap luminaries like 50 Cent and 2Chainz, despite his stance as an outspoken conservative.
Gray’s success appears to be part of a growing movement of blacks migrating away from Democrat Party politics, which has long taken the entire race for granted as a reliable voting bloc.
Former President Donald Trump received support from several high-profile black rappers during his 2020 campaign—among them, Gray, who included the following lyrics in his song “Pro Life Pro God Pro Trump,” as part of the album MAGA Ain’t Got No Color:
Trump 2020 that’s big facts
No I can’t vote for no Democrat
Used to be a liberal but I switched that
Pull up to yo hood in my big hat
Gray’s latest hit was inspired by the “Let’s Go Brandon” chant that was unintentionally started by NBC reporter Kelli Stavast at a NASCAR race when she mistakenly heard the crowd cheering “Let’s Go Brandon.” They were actually cheering “F— Joe Biden.”
Announcer: “As you can hear the chants from the crowd, ‘Let’s go Brandon’.”
The Crowd: “F*CK JOE BIDEN”
