Yesterday on IHipHop we posted the track that Ludacris had recorded in support of Barack Obama’s Presidential Campain, but it tunrs out Luda might have been better saving his rhymes for someone other than Obama. Bill Burton, a spokesperson for the Obama campaign said “Ludacris is a talented individual but he should be ashamed of these lyrics,” and the song has been deemed ‘outrageously offensive.’The lyrics which include insults to the Republican candidate and the Senators former Democratic running mate, Hilary Clinton goes against the direction in which Obama hopes to go. “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,” continued Burton.As at press time there has been no comment from the DTP boss or his Publicist.
