Barack Obama’s campaign spokesman Bill Burton released a statement today blasting Ludacris for the rapper’s verse in his new track ‘Obama Is Here’, where he rapped, “Hillary hated on you, so that bitch is irrelevant.” Burton said, “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. This song is not only outrageously offensive to Senator Clinton, Reverend Jackson, Senator McCain, and President Bush, it is offensive to all of us who are trying to raise our children with the values we hold dear. While Ludacris is a talented individual he should be ashamed of these lyrics.” Read more. Listen to the track below.
