President Obama has something to say about Nicki Minaj‘s rap to vote for his opponent Mitt Romney in November’s election. On the “Mercy” track Nicki rapped, “I’m a Republican voting for Mitt Romney, you lazy bit*hes are f—–g up the economy.”
The lyric was an easy standout for the rapper’s fans who quickly called her out on the lyric. The “Beez in the Trap” rapper never responded to the criticism but as it turns out she’s not even registered to vote! Music critics were on the other side of the fence not giving much credence the lyric. President Obama isn’t either.
In a phone interview with Power 95.3 the president was asked about rap,
“Yeah, I’m not sure that’s actually what happened. But I think she had a song on there, a little rap that said that but she likes to play different characters. So I don’t know what’s going on there.”
Sounds rather indifferent which may be why he has little trouble with his daughters Sasha & Malia listening to Nicki:
“You know, I don’t know if they really listen to Nicki Minaj that much. But let’s face it, they are now more hipper than me. There’s a certain point where your kids get old enough, where they’re just hipper than you are.”
