Ludacris’ “Politics” song has been called “outrageously offensive” by Barack Obama’s camp. We all saw it coming. Luda knew what was up when he recorded the song.
Ludacris is a talented individual but he should be ashamed of these lyrics,” said Mr Obama’s spokesman Bill Burton.
The rap star’s publicist initially declined to comment, reported the Associated Press.
The musician used a misogynistic term to describe Mrs Clinton and urged Mr Obama against appointing her as his running mate, saying that she “hated on you”.
Mr McCain, the Republican candidate for the presidency, does not belong in “any chair unless he’s paralysed”, according to the rapper.
Mr Burton added: “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.” (Source)
In case you missed it, click here to hear the song. Many feel that the song is bringing negative attention to Obama in a time when he needs it least, but music is an art and Luda is an artist. He did what he has always done…but his thoughts in a rap. Free speech folks. Luda may support Obama, but he’s still free to speak his mind.
