Nicki Minaj Raps Support For Mitt Romney, Prompting Twitter Threats

Lil Wayne 'Dedication 4' Mixtape cover

Lil Wayne and DJ Drama have joined forces on the ‘Dedication 4’ mixtape, the fourth installment of the mixtape series that is already creating political headlines thanks to some words dropped by Nicki Minaj on the track ‘Mercy’. “I’m a Republican voting for Mitt Romney, you lazy bitches are fu**ing up the economy,” the Trinidad and Tobago born, Queens raised artist raps.

Among the Tweets reacting to the Minaj lyrics, and in some cases sending threats to the artist:

Meghan McCain (@McCainBlogette): I don’t know if I could actually be more entertained by political journalists attempting to analyze Nicki Minaj’s alleged Romney endorsement

Blonde Bombshell (@MoniiNayo): No this is the last straw @NICKIMINAJ has took it too far talking about she voting for Mitt Romney, she clearly don’t want her black fans no mo

Travon Free (@Travon): I guess Nicki Minaj endorsing Romney is because her terrible album sales are Obama’s fault.

Blerdalicious (@RtRDH): I really could care less who Nicki Minaj is voting for, I just want to know why her music makes people feel dumber

@__Tuneche: @NICKIMINAJ VOTE ROMNEY AND I WILL STAB YOU IN THE EYE

TEAMREDFOXX_JAX (@TEAMREDFOXX_JAX): Somebody should punch that bitch in her fu**in’ face the same way Lil’ Mo got it-only @nickiminaj REALLY deserves it! #tiredasshooker

#F**kMittRomney (@2012IsNotUrYear): If you really vote for Mitt Romney Ima punch you in the throat @NickiMinaj

bambam (@uwnabampam): been said she must die RT @TutiDaBoss: That still made my skin crawl hearing @nickiMinaj endorse Romney

Elektra Love (@MyHotTopics): @NickiMinaj 99.9% of your fans are broke poverty living hoes and you endorsing Mitt Romney doe? Bitch eat sh** and die! You are a disgrace to music, the black population and America as a whole. Do humanity a favor and die.

Baby (@chillriley): If Romney wins, I hope you die. @NickiMinaj

Rich Rick also talked about his upcoming music and projects he’ll be releasing in the future.
