The rapper Ludacris has a song out about his man are the lyrics:
"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 bitch 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!"

Notice how he said "world" and not "America"...I am not going to act like this is an "association indiscretion" like all Obama's other bedfellows. It does make me feel like there is a cosmic trendy fashion statement to the Obama candidacy. Its vogue, its in, its like a new pair of 7 jeans or a Vera Wang gown, to vote for Barack Obama. All the cool kids are doing it so mom I should, too. Having said that, that is not what is bothering me about this piece of sh** of a song. What bothers me is this is what we have to look forward to in an Obama Presidency. Criticizers will show up in rap songs and be haters, bitches and mentally hadicapped. I hate this election. I hate what this country has turned into. A bunch of freaking nut jobs. When a poll shows that Americans think the country is heading in the wrong direction this is what they are talking about. THIS DIRECTION. The country is being controlled by loser democrats who prefer to win elections NOT based on the issues, but on propaganda and world adoration. The follow the crowd method of winning is working...Ludacris may just be our next cabinet member. Obama has a bunch of dumb ass friends and this black angry militant act is getting so old. Obama is not denouncing the rapper, but his "campaign" is. He is too busy getting ready to rule the world. He has his transition team in place...yea the one where he moves into the "black" House. You can tell a lot about a person by the company they keep. Obama is Ludacris, he lets his cronies do his dirty work. He panders to the right and lets his left-winged radical doorknobs keep the far left beholden. Ludacris says "Said I handled his biz and I'm one of his favorite rappers." This is what we are in for folks, a whole lotta village idiots coming to Obama's rescue. Yep, Ludacris held fundraisers for the Senator. Ludacris is awesome. He calls women bitches and ho's, and that is just straight up good freaking music. His other lyrics are too horrible to post. This may or may not (I suspect it is) be a symptom of a Obama philosophy, but it is the crowd we are letting rule the country. And that my friends is ludicrous.

I think maybe the most damaging part of this is the "black house" bit. The nastiness about McCain, Hillary, and Bush are old hat. The loony left and their propaganda arm the MSM has made the public numb to this type of rhetoric. But this is not the first time we've heard the black house quote and this attacks an American institution. The two things that will derail Obama's ascendancy to the throne this year are the "angry white voters" and the Hillary supporters. Ludacris managed to hit both in this garbage. The fact that Obama himself is not condemning the rapper will not go unnoticed.

El Cerdo Ignatius said...

This sounds a little familiar. Not a lot familiar, but a little. I refer to Obama's long association with Jeremiah Wright - who said the most vile things from the pulpit and Obama just put up with it because as a black man, he understands that perspective, even if, as he says, he doesn't agree with it. Now we have a rapper spewing more bile, and we hear nothing from Obama. Granted, maybe Ludacris isn't that close to Obama, certainly not like Jeremiah Wright. But on the other hand, you report, Nikki, that Ludacris has held fundraisers for Barack, and unless the photo evidence above is fake, it appears the two of them have been together before.

Can you IMAGINE the (God forbid)inauguration ball music?

HIP Hoppers dancing all over the stage with their hands 'you know where' ...dark glasses.....pants around their knees? SO COOL!

Welcome to the new America. Sometimes I curse the day that dope Clinton answered "briefs" and played his stupid sax on Leno...he brought us down SO LOW, so little dignity. Some glass ceiling to break, huh? How proud he must be.

Sandi said...

Oh, lovely. A rapper for an endorsement. I mean, a disco queen, perhaps. But a rapper?!?!? Time for some wine.

Nikki said...

Chuck, I agree the Black House is the most damning...its all pretty yucky to me. And yes it is old hat. This is what we are up against and in the words of John Kerry, I can't believe we are losing to this idiot. :)N

Edge, its going to be interesting. Traditional it will be, but the friends that accompany and stay in the white house will be as colorful as the hollywood crowd Clinton let roam the halls. :)N

Z, to be honest I like some hip/hop music and some rap...I have to problem with it as long as the company you keep as a candidate is roll model material for the kiddies. The youth looking up to obama and his hanging with gargabe doesn't bode well in my mind...:)N

Sandi, a rapper endorser, and not just any rapper, a rapper akin to eminem and the other gangsta rappers...its an on-going theme with militant. :)N

Nikki said...

Ignatius, it is an on-going theme for a candidate of change...perhaps the change he means has more to do with bringing a little hip left winged governing to americans...its so agrivating. :)N

Chatterness said...

Poor Obama.....everyone loves him!

Khaki Elephant said...

I'm not so sure that everybody loves Obama. In a year when a democrat should be guaranteed the White House, this demagogue can't build a lead against a 72-year-old man. But I would agree the Hollywood and Europeans love. Perhaps that should be endorsement enough.

Z said...

Nikki, I like some of it too...I really DO! But at a PRESIDENTIAL INAUGURATION? Pants around their ankles and grabbing their...


Nikki said...

chatterness...not everyone. I don't...hehe :)N

Khaki, my sentiments exactly! :)N

Z, I agree lets keep the pants up and the crotch grabbing to the mtv video awards! lol :)N

Hi nikki. Good to see you are still kicking

As an avid rap fan and political junkie this post gets me going!

You are correct. Ludacris stands for much of what’s wrong with hip hop. By and large his lyrics provide negative self-image reinforcement, sexism and general nastiness. I personally find much of his act to be in poor taste. The problem is you picked an easy target. Sure Ludacris is loathsome, but many other rappers have referenced Obama lately, and some have something intelligent to say. Most of the rap one comes across is full of bloated egos, empty personas, and horrific immaturity. However if you dig deeper you can find brilliant poets spouting socially conscious thoughts. There is almost no one in other music genres saying anything deep or relevant, so your problem is more with 21st century pop culture than rap.

Your fears that Obama will sully the austerity of the Office with his blackness are absurd. Are you forgetting his prep school upbringing and Harvard education? Juxtapose Obama’s nature with that of roughneck LBJ and tell me who the hoodlum is. You can tell a lot about someone by the company the keep eh? How about the Keating Five and 2 wives?

P.S. Eazy-E, member of N.W.A. and author of “F*ck tha Police,” had a sit down at the White House with G.H. Bush.

Listen to Common “The People” and Talib Kweli “The Hostile Gospel Part I.” All rap is not crap.

Nikki said...

Hi Johnny! Great to hear from you! I am glad that you are still kicking around yourself. You make some great points and dare I say that I like rap a matter of fact my blog theme song is eminems without me... "this looks like a time for me, so everbody just follow me, cuz we need a little contraversay, cuz it feels so empty without me" I have a lot of rap in the ipod and even more hip/hop. I am a total music junkie and know there is some great stuff out there that doesn't include raping women and hangin with the ho's...I am glad to hear we have some rappers visiting the Prez. He is probably going, ya know let them in I am out of here! thanks for popping in and giving a different prespective! :)N

Incognito said...

I cringed when i heard this song on the radio... i've never been a fan of rap and the generally misogynistic, hatefilled lyrics.
God help us all, if he win.s

"Said I handled his biz and I'm one of his favorite rappers

Doesn't that just say it all? Because, you know, it is just so easy and normal to suddenly find yourself in the slammer! Happens all the time, for no reason at all... Oh,look... here I am in jail again! Who else's fault is it this time? But I deserve a "special pardon" because, hey, you know, I don't have to be responsible like other "regular people". And I'm Bam Bam's favorite.

"Rap" is a pawned excuse for those with no talent in the first place, through which the "artist" spreads raw sewage like this profound example. Have we traveled so far from the truth that no one can any longer recognize reality? Perhaps the majority of us deserve Obama's coming socialism.

oh nikki, its as if you jumped in my mouth and pryed the words right out! 1. i hate rappers of that nature, black, white, asian, whatever... i hate what they stand for and how they degrade women and various other people. 2. i hate that it is the cool thing to like obama and everyone follows it blindly like smoking in high school [you'd think they'd have learned their lesson not to follow, now that they have emphasema]. it's kind of like poor elizabeth on The View [which i can barely watch because they bully her everyday with ridiculousness] she said "its as if you can only have one opinion in this country right now, what ever happened to free speech." it's true!

Ludachris is not so bad - ya really want to turn your hair white (no pun intended!) check out Lil Jon's "Crunk Juice" CD.

Fact is hip hop is bought en masse not by ghetto dwelling playas and gankstas but by your own sweet kids - safe as milk in Bankers Hollow - but down with the plan muzak wise.

GOP should hire some hot rockers to write and video a cool Mc tune and even bling for some HH stuff. Though these cats are artists - they also enjoy collecting presidential flash cards.

None of this suprises me at all. Osama, I mean Obama is a very dangerous person. From his pastor to his terrorist buddy and now this? I sure hope everyone comes out to vote against this guy.

Even if you took all of the baggage away from him, the fact that he refuses to say the Pledge of Allegiance or hold his hand over his heart is more then enough for me to NOT vote for him. This man is a disgrace to this GREAT COUNTRY and the fact that he even has a glimmer of hope makes me sick. I have ZERO respect for ANYONE willing to vote for this clown.

Nikki said...

dailyelephant...I agree! only one opinion counts right now and it isn't the right one its the left one...all other opinions are racist. :)N
