Senators Obama and Mc Cain will debate one last time tonight at 9:00pm est at Hofstra University on Long Island, NY. This debate comes 21 days before election day on Nov 4th. As of today two new national polls show McCain trailing Obama by a significant margin (14 points according to New York Times/CBS and nine points per LA Times/Bloomberg).
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.”
Mrs Clinton, who was given a standing ovation as she took the stage, thanked those who supported her through her primary campaign but said Mr Obama was now “my candidate”. (more…)
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.
