Over the weekend during the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), which was held in Orlando, Florida, Stone starred in a pro-Trump music video.
As CNN reports, the music video also featured the leader of the Proud Boys, which is a “far-right group” that “describes itself as a men’s organization for ‘Western chauvinists’ and has often fought with left-wing activists,” as the Wall Street Journal reports.
“Who won? Trump won,” the rapper says in the music video.
Forgiato Blow told CNN in a statement, “The line currently being dissected by mainstream news — CNN and others — has been shortened in an attempt to make it seem like I am glorifying the Jan. 6 protest, which I absolutely am not doing.”

The rapper also created a music video outside of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. His spokesperson told CNN he did not enter the Capitol building.
Additionally, CNN asked Stone if he is being investigated by the FBI for Jan. 6.
He responded, “Any honest investigation would prove there is no evidence whatsoever that I was either involved in or knew about the stupid, senseless, counterproductive, illegal assault at the Capitol.”
“The folks who did invade the Capitol should be prosecuted,” Stone added.
