Plies has condemned CEOs for not paying enough to employees who risk coronavirus infection daily.

The longtime Florida rapper and label owner delivered the short video rant Instagram on Tuesday (March 31) after some of the realities of the pandemic dawned on him.

“I woke up this morning and I thought about it, and I said, ‘Yeah y’all. This shit about ‘we the richest country in the world’ – I get all of that!” he said. “But what I don’t get (is), you tell us a hundred thousand people gon’ die from this pandemic. (There’s) only 300,000 people that died so far. So that mean 97,000 more fuckin’ people gotta die.”

Plies then tore into CEOs for underpaying “frontline” workers – such as those in the retail, hospitality or medical industries – while they remain safe at home.

“And you got people out here, still on the fuckin frontline working,” he said. “Whether they at Publix, whether they at Walmart, whether they work at the bank, (are) an airline stewardess or fuckin’ doctors. “People out here on the front line, still risking their fucking life, while all of you CEOs home, quarantining with your goddamn family.”

Plies ended his diatribe by issuing an impassioned plea to CEOs to increase wages for the dangers they’re facing.

“And all I’m saying is, if they gon’ risk they fucking life, pay ‘em like they fucking risking they life!” he said. “You don’t risk your fuckin’ life for no nine dollars an hour, no eleven dollars an hour. No fucking $30 an hour. Pay ‘em like they fucking risking they life!”
