Looks like Fat Joe is disgusted with Daddy Yankee’s endorsement of Senator John McCain. The Bronx rapper has in a recent interview with MTV denounced the Reggaeton superstar for supporting the Republican candidate in the run for the Presidency. Joe even went as far to say that he would quite happily sit down and school Daddy Yankee on the subject of politics as he believed the remarks came from him out “for a look,” or the fact that he is “not educated on politics.” Joe like many other artists and entertainment stars have all been in Denver for the Democratic Convention which saw Chicago Senator Barack Obama make his speech last night in front of 75,000 people. Obama who made his speech 45 years to the date since Martin Luther King made his ‘I have a dream speech ‘ had the crowd on their feet with his words of unity and change for his country. “America, we cannot turn back,” Obama said. “We cannot walk alone. At this moment, in this election, we must pledge once more to walk into the future.”
Today marks the 45th anniversary for the day Martin Luther King delivered his ‘I have a dream speech’ at the Lincoln Memorial during the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom back in 1963. The speech was without a shadow of a doubt one of the most poignant of the twentieth century and one which signified a defining chapter in th Civil Rights Movement. Tonight will also see the new hope for America Barack Obama address the Democrat Party at the convention in Denver Colorado with his interpretation of ‘change’ and what can and will be done for the country with the Democrats at the helm once again. Last night Bill Clinton followed the precedent set by his wife and former runner in the race for the Whitehouse, Hilary, in declaring support for the Chicago Senator.

The ever-eclectic and stylish frontman of A Tribe Called Quest, Q-Tip, is currently working on releasing his sophomore solo album, entitled The Renaissance. It’s been a few years since we last heard some original material from Tip, and all fans of Native Tongue and the early Tribe days should definitely be excited for his return. According to an interview with Billboard Mag, Tip said he’s enlisted Raphael Saadiq, D’Angelo and Amanda Diva for features on the album. Tip also plans to begin the 9-track album with a snippet from an Obama speech, about which he said, “I start the album off with the Obama speech not just because I’m African-American, but because I really feel like he’s a fresh new voice and alternative from what we’ve seen in the political scene in some time.” Check out leaked track “Getting Up” here for now, and go see Tribe and Tip performing live at Rock the Bells.
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.
