I'm waiting for the walk-back, but Nikki can only pull that off with a tremendous loss to her street cred. If you're going to rap it, you've gotta live it. Via the Daily Caller:
Rap sensation Nicki Minaj seemingly offered her endorsement to Romney in freestyle verse over Kanye West and G.O.O.D. Music’s “Mercy” instrumental.
Lyrics as follows:
Court side, you in the C Section
I’m with them bloods you you with the C Section
In Malibu I’m bout a sea section
And all these bitches is my sons, yeah C-Section
I’m a Republican voting for Mitt Romney
You lazy bitches is fucking up the economy
Out in Miami I be chilling with a zombie
Diablo Alejandro de Mello Gandhi
The song is featured on Lil Wayne “Dedication 4 (Mixtape)” and was released earlier today...
The Huffington Post has a different take:
Some wonder if she was impersonating a Republican in the first line, which would make Republicans the target of the "lazy b----es" insult.
So maybe she's mocking Mitt, as being just another cruel, out of touch, right-wing monster. Although the shitty economy cannot be helping her album/ticket sales, and she wouldn't be the first rapper to support a Republican:
50 Cent has compared himself to George W. Bush and LL Cool J attended the 2004 Republican National Convention.
Rapper Talib Greene also sees it differently:
But in the privacy of the voting booth...who knows what part Nicki Minaj - as well as a larger portion of traditionally Democratic voting blocs - will play this time?
Might just be a different tune, whether they admit it or not...
