Did anyone hear about the shit hopper praising Obama in an offensive song?

I was flipping through the channels last night and Fox news was having a field day with this one. The shit hopper, Ladacris, had made a song praising Obama but in the same song, he called Hillary Clinton a bitch and said that the only chair McCain needed to be in was a paralized one.

That just goes to show how ignorant these damn shit hoppers are. The idiot doesn't even have sense enough to know that shit like this can hurt Obama's chances of winning.

I'm sure Ludacris was thrilled to bits earlier this year when Obama said he thought he was a great talent. However, I read this morning that Obama is no fan of this song.

Obama's camp said



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 Senator Clinton, Reverend Jackson, Senator 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.”

Can't wait to see what Big Mama O has to say about this... You know Ludacris was the first to start dissing Oprah when she attacked him on his show about his lyrics and cut out his response to her questions

I was watching it last night with my brother who is not heavy into music and isn't into politics either. He's more of a sports freak. Anyway, even he said...."Why would this clown's record company let him release a song like that at a time like this". Well, that's a good point. I bet some rich white record executives are laughing their asses off at the stir that their puppet has caused.

Half of Obama's campaign time is spent denouncing the actions of others it seems. Must suck.

I just read this story over at ABC, and they also mentioned a Jay Z song:

UPDATE: ABC News' Sheila Marikar points out that rapper Jay-Z mentions Obama in a verse from his song "A-Billi":

"I see Benjamins
and a billion other 'big head' people
imma natural born hustla
Marcy project mutha f**ka
Turned proffesional journalist
reportin' live from the gutter
where girls carry box cutters
brothers shoot-up with undercovers
screamin' 'F**k the World!!'
Why?
Cause' don't no body love us y'all
Shawn Carter, Sean Bell
What's the difference? Do tell
50 Shots Or 50 Mill?
Ain't no difference go to hell
So raaahh, lick a shot for Barack Obama
change gon' come or imma
buy the whole hood lamas on me
Roc nation army"

Shown the lyrics and asked for comment, Obama campaign spokesman Bill Burton said, "What does this mean?"

And what gets me is how they want to link Obama in with this clown as if he had something to do with the making of the song. Hell, just because a song is praising someone doesn't mean they had anything to do with the song. Does anyone remember Kim Fields' song in the early 1980s called "Dear Michael". Do you think Michael Jackson had anything to do with the recording of that song? Hell no. lol

I guarantee you this, if a country or rock act made a song praising McCain and it was full of racist lyrics, the press wouldn't tie McCain in with it. They would simply see it for what it is, which is an idiot that just happens to support him but has no connection whatsoever.

I feel bad for the guy. Along with having to deal with the added pressure of being viewed as Pro-black radical by conservatives, he also has to worry himself with the 'tard actions of others who don't realize their antics only contribute to the narrow-minded misconception some have of him.

He and his staff must be stressed beyond belief.

These rappers would be better off just showing their support for Obama in the voting booths. He doesn’t need to be mentioned in their crap tracks.

I just hope there is a good side to this. I hope it angers enough people to turn more of them against shit hop. It would help it get another step closer to dying and we can all get back to jamming again. Unfortunately, it won't kill it though. Most of the brats that buy it don't vote anyway.

"I see all the rich business people in the ghettos. I am like a news reporter who see these project people shoot heroin with undercover cops they saying, "fuck the world!" Because no one loves them. So Im going to vote for Obama or me and my Roc A Fella Crew and the ghetto are going to take over" is kinda what he is saying...

Well he shoulda thought about that before he chose to call himself a fan of Luda. lol

And PLEASE Obama, stop backtracking. Luda was calling people bitches on hoes on his records for the longest. Stop get upset now that it's a bitch you know. lol
