These days, it seems like rappers fire shots at their contemporaries to boost album sales, be it the 50 Cent vs. Kanye West stunt that went down some years back or the recent Lil Wayne vs. Jay-Z “beef.” But it appears that Weezy’s disses are going beyond the world of hip-hop. In an interview with VIBE Magazine, he was asked to speak on the Tea Party debate and give his opinion on Republican presidential candidates Rick Perry, Mitt Romney, and Michele Bachmann. His response wasn’t so much an outright shot, but more of a “they don’t give a fuck about us” type of answer:
“You learn from what the right-wing is doing and you take something from it,” Wayne tells VIBE. “I feel like as a people the most that we can do is better ourselves and learn. Then look at yourself and ask ‘Am I the person they’re talking about or am I not?’ You have to make the most of who you are because the Republicans are never going to like us.”
Damn. But that wasn’t all. Weezy then noted that he believes these candidates don’t respect President Obama because of his ethnicity. “I don’t think I have to say that for everybody to know that,” he told VIBE. Personally, I don’t know if Weezy is really the person to ask about stuff like this, if only because his social commentaries were missing on Tha Carter IV compared to his previous efforts.
