Ludacris’ freestyle “Obama is Here”, which dropped a few days back, has been denounced by the Obama camp after Hilary Clinton supporter, Yashar Hedayat, made a big stink about the line “Hillary hated on you, so that bitch is irrelevant”.
Barack Obama’s spokesperson, Bill Burton, released the following statement,
As Barack Obama has said many, many times in the past, rap lyrics today too often perpetuate misogyny, materialism, and degrading images that he doesn’t want his daughters or any children exposed to. This song is not only outrageously offensive to Senator Clinton, Reverend Jackson, Senator McCain, and President Bush, it is offensive to all of us who are trying to raise our children with the values we hold dear. While Ludacris is a talented individual he should be ashamed of these lyrics.
Obviously this isn’t a big deal, but Obama can’t have McCain & The Republic Machine coming at him for this, what with the election in less than 100 days.
