The Hill at the DNC: Thursday
Nicki Minaj raps Mitt Romney endorsement
Rapper Nicki Minaj gave Mitt Romney an expletive-filled endorsement in a Lil Wayne song released Monday.
The pop star, rumored to be a new judge on "American Idol," also took a shot at President Obama on the eve of the Democratic convention.
"I'm a Republican voting for Mitt Romney, you lazy bitches are f------ up the economy," she rapped on "Mercy," the fifth track on the Lil Wayne's "Dedication 4" album.
The line was first uncovered by Rap Dose. The online music magazine also pointed out that Minaj rapped over beats produced by Kanye West, who attended the 2008 Democratic National Convention in Denver in support of President Obama.
