Barack Obama references Lil Wayne

Barack Obama references Lil Wayne
Barack Obama’s PR people are doing their job. In a campaign event at Powder Springs, Georgia, Obama got tough on African American youth, telling them to look beyond common dreams such as making it in the NBA or as a hip-hop star. "You are probably not that good a rapper. Maybe you are the next Lil Wayne, but probably not, in which case you need to stay in school," said the presumptive Democratic nominee.

With sales of Tha Carter III soaring, the Lil Wayne namedrop seems perfectly timed. He’s certainly the kind of artist that Obama would be wise to get on his side as the election looms ever closer, especially as his hardened comments about making it in the NBA or as a rapper might not go down well in the African American community. “You are over-rated in your own mind. You will not play in the NBA,” he warned.

This wouldn’t be the first time that Obama has let his musical knowledge slip out. It was reported that Jay-Z’s “99 Problems” was played at the victory party in Des Moines, and this article highlights some of the tracks on Obama’s iPod. Ludacris, Miles Davis, Bob Dylan, Sheryl Crow, and the Rolling Stones all fight for airtime when the senator hits the shuffle button. [The Daily Swarm]

Lil Wayne

instead of name-dropping overrated rappers and pandering to the idiots who still buy Rolling Stone, why doesn't he spend more time explaining why he buckled on the FISA compromise, even after he vowed he wouldn't, just months ago?

Easoklan,

If you read the article, which from the spelling in your comment Id be surprised if you could, you would see that Obama was giving Lil Wayne props you idiot. By saying "Maybe youre the next Lil Wayne, but probably not" He was telling students that Wayne is good, but they should not expect to be as successful as he is in music if they suck, which they probably do. Since you cant spell worth sh*t, hes probably trying to get them not to be illiterate, ignorant, unskilled, untalented a**holes like yourself. Learn to read and speak ENGLISH then maybe you would be able to understand. We dont need more dumb "muh fukas" like you. Especially in the Bay.

I am so happy that Barack won,
I partially agree with JB.
Yes, Obama was giving Lil' Wayne his props.
And, i understand what JB is saying about speaking properly.
But, i also agree with vamp-girl.
Sometimes it doesn't really matter,
u cud tak lik dis ..
And be a straight "A" student.

Weezy lover. Barack fan.

Just wait until these "straight A students" get in the real world and try communicating like that. Sometimes it doesn't matter is so true. For instance, it doesn't matter to speak correctly if you are talking about strippers, drugs, and well wait...that's about all the self centered, un-talented rappers talk about now-a-days. Lil' Wayne is so over rated. I can't wait, in a couple years people will be puking at the thought of him.

Goodbye English

kak,
lil wayne dont like john mccain dumb **** ***

Well all of you need to give the "Badass Niger Pose a Rest"! It doesn't mean sh$t anyways. Your all uneducated and unskilled and that's why I'm bailing out jobs and chilling in Hawaii golfing. Have a Nice Day polluting the earth!

President Obama

naw he's trying to save the rap game, he's bascially telling all the no talent bums to stop saturating the rap industry lol.

vik

Does that explain why music education has been cut from schools? If you don't become famous than it doesn't matter? Music will make no difference in your life? I don't buy that!!!
