Last week, Lil Wayne’s Dedication 4 mixtape was finally dropped, but overshadowing Weezy and the mixtape’s constant delay was a lyric by Nicki Minaj that sounded like she was endorsing Mitt Romeny for president. It’s hard to tell if she’s serious when she raps “I’m a Republican voting for Mitt Romney, you lazy bitches are fucking up the economy,” since Minaj is not one known for her political discourse.
Befitting this insane campaign, President Obama himself was asked about the lyric in question by the truth-seekers at Orlando’s Power 95.3. The DJs talk about the president’s daughters and their music-listening habits before playing Minaj’s lyrics to Mr. Obama to get his take. He generally sounds confused by the guest verse, stating that “she likes to play different characters, so I don’t know what’s going on there.” Listen to part of the interview below.
UPDATE: Nicki Minaj just responded to the president over Twitter. [via Miss Info]
Ha! Thank you for understanding my creative humor & sarcasm Mr. President, the smart ones always do… *sends love & support* @barackobama
