The state has been suffering from record-breaking flooding, with thousands losing their homes and at least 13 people losing their lives.
Gates, who is becoming notorious for his outlandish comments, cracked a joke while talking to TMZ, saying that he has an idea for Obama.
“He shoulda got an ark,” the rapper said before taking off in a Rolls-Royce.
Perhaps this joke, referencing the biblical story of Noah and the flood, was a little bit inappropriate, but then again, the comment IS coming from Gates.
Check out the Louisiana-born rapper’s commentary on the subject in the clip below.
