Barack Obama's friend and supporter Ludacris has released a new rap song supporting his candidate, Politics: Obama is Here. Hearing this for the first time on Rush Limbaugh's show yesterday, at first I thought it was a parody. It isn't.
It's a remarkable piece of ... work. And I think that all of us should make it the top-requested song on the airwaves this summer and fall. Play it all the time, over and over again. I think that it's important for the American public to see and hear admitted Obama supporters in all of their glory.
To give you an idea of how much of a problem Barack Obama and his campaign thinks this song - by a supporter of his - could be to the candidate is the speed in which they came out and attempted to throw Ludacris under the bus: Obama campaign rejects rapper Ludacris' rhymes. (Note how the AP reporter covering for Obama on this issue calls the rap song a "rhyme" - I guess that polls better than "rap"...)
If this is what the country is in for with an Obama Presidency, according to one of Obama's friends and supporters, why shouldn't America hear it as often and as loudly as possible? The Senator can make the song one of the pillars of his post-racial candidacy. Imagine it playing at the DNC convention in Denver! What on earth is the Obama campaign afraid of? Although admittedly I don't think that I've ever heard anyone request a pre-emptive pardon for himself from a candidate who isn't even President yet...
Here's the lyrics to this latest ode to the Messiah, courtesy of LiveLeak. Read it - aside from the aforementioned pardon request, it contains nothing but what the Left has been saying, loudly and repeatedly, throughout this entire election season. Why are they suddenly embarrassed about it now?
I'm back on it like I just signed my record deal
yeah the best is here, the Bentley Coup paint is dripping wet, it got sex appeal
never should have hated
you never should've doubted him
with a slot in the president's iPod Obama shattered 'em
Said I handled his biz and I'm one of his favorite rappers
Well give Luda a special pardon if I'm ever in the slammer
Better yet put him in office, make me your vice president
Hillary hated on you, so that b^$&%* is irrelevant
Jesse talking slick and apologizing for what?
if you said it then you meant it how you want it have a gut!
and all you other politicians trying to hate on my man,
watch us win a majority vote in every state on my man
you can't stop what's bout to happen, we bout to make history
the first black president is destined and it's meant to be
the threats ain't fazing us, the nooses or the jokes
so get off your ass, black people, it's time to get out and vote!
paint the White House black and I'm sure that's got 'em terrified
McCain don't belong in ANY chair unless he's paralyzed
Yeah I said it cause Bush is mentally handicapped
Ball up all of his speeches and I throw em like candy wrap
cause what you talking I hear nothing even relevant
and you the worst of all 43 presidents
get out and vote or the end will be near
the world is ready for change because Obama is here!
cause Obama is here
The world is ready for change because Obama is here!
Once again, here's the video: Politics: Obama is Here. I wonder if there's enough time for the entertainment world to award Ludacris a Grammy for this before the election?
