Note the question mark in the headline, as we’re new to dealing with Republican “endorsements” that arrive via mixtape. The verse that has listeners so excited, delivered by rapper Nicki Minaj, goes, “I’m a Republican voting for Mitt Romney/You lazy bitches is fucking up the economy.”
Minaj appears as a guest on rapper Lil Wayne’s latest mixtape, which is called “Dedication 4″ and was released on the Internet today.
The verse, from the track “Mercy,” is sure to make a splash as the mixtape makes the rounds, but it might not be a good idea to take the line as a straight-up endorsement rather than as the adoption of a persona — a bit like saying Ellen Barkin is a conservative because she plays one on TV. Conservatives can hope, though. A Nicki Minaj endorsement is a good thing, right?
And you guys thought I was just drunk when I tweeted a few wks ago that I liked Nicki Minaj. OK…I was…but still…—
