Music: New Jeezy and Nas Track

Barack Obama has become the most bandwagon topic in hip-hop production. Everyone from Jay-z to Common to (yes this is serious) DJ Drama have begun dropping lines about our Senator in recent recordings. The most recent ludacris mixtape, produced by DJ Drama "The Preview" even sparked a debate on Fox News when Judacris dropped these lines over the beat from Young Buck's single "Get Buck" -

"Hillary hated on you so that bitch is irrelevent"
"John McCain doesn't belong in any chair unless he's paralyzed"
"George Bush is mentally handicapped"

Although Ludacris is funny intentionally, DJ Drama's commentary at the end of the song is fucking priceless - For some reason hearing Drama scream "Its Time for Change" in the same voice that he screams "Gangsta Grillz" makes the slogan sound really sleazy... like mall Santa sleazy.

Fox news earlier this year refered to the pound Barack gave Michelle as a "terrorist fist jab" - So it makes sense that they would blow the Luda thing out of proportion as well.

Anyway we all already knew that Fox news is evil. Just ask Nas who recently delivered his petition to their corporate office to ask them to "stop their racist attacks on the Obama family."

This brings me back to my original point. It's kind of annoying that rappers like Jay who declined previous offers from the campaign to work collaboratively are now profiting off of Obama's fame. Jay and Young are true hustlers at heart. Now, Nas and Young Jeezy who have both recently released pro-Obama anthems independently, team up to make as much fucking money off this Obama wave as they possibly can with "My President is Black." I can't lie its a pretty solid track and Recession is going to be a hot album - Nas spits a solid verse in a start to attempt to erase our memory of the shittier two thirds of his last album.
