... Obama shattered ‘em. Said I handled his biz and I’m one of his favorite rappers. Well give Luda a special pardon if I’m ever in the slammer ...Ah, yes, "land of the free" and "home of the brave." Congrats to the "singer," however, for all of the free media that will generate "controversy" and most certainly boost album sales. Ya gotta' love capitalism. But one wonders how AT&T is feeling right about now, having just signed into a multi-million dollar deal with this keen political talent.
Now we just need to sit back and wait for Mr. Obama to say that he is "saddened and deeply disappointed," that we cannot judge the Ludacris catalogue on the basis of one or two lines in one "song" and that Ludacris is just not the same Ludacris that he used to know. There is more room under the bus, you know ... See Washington Post coverage of this "story" here.
Update 1: Obama's "campaign" has "rejected" the "song." No word from Obama.
Update 2: AP cannot get comment from either Obama or Ludacris.
Update 3: Headlines still say "Obama," but articles still read "an Obama spokesman"
