Ludacris and his irreverent Politics
“…paint the White House black…” sings Ludacris in his song ‘Politics: Obama is Here’, in which he has made it known who he’s voting for. Rapper slams George Bush, Hillary Clinton and McCain, and glorifies Barack Obama.And, he asks to make him his vice president.
But Presidential candidate Obama’s not givin Luda’s praises back at him. The Obama camp has actually slammed the lyrics to the song, calling them outrageously offensive.
The tune calls the possible Obama presidency destiny… and goes on criticizing McCain.
Barack Obama’s camp issued an e-mail statement regarding the song in which campaign spokesman Bill Burton says:
As Barack Obama has said many, many times in the past, rap lyrics today too often perpetuate misogyny, materialism, and degrading images that he doesn’t want his daughters or any children exposed to. This song is not only outrageously offensive to Sen. Clinton, Rev. Jackson, Sen. McCain and President Bush; it is offensive to all of us who are trying to raise our children with the values we hold dear. While Ludacris is a talented individual he should be ashamed of these lyrics.”
Probably not the reaction Ludacris was hoping for. Dear supporters, you should get the fact that support is not putting anyone down. Get it?!
I guess, some people just need their 15 minutes of fame even if they are already famous.
