The Young Money Cash Money Business Superstar Nicki Minaj made a very controversial statement on a track that she did with Lil Wayne, “Mercy.” Her response on this track has caused many fans to question her political views. Minaj declared, “I’m a Republican, voting for Mitt Romney, you lazy b—– are f—ing up the economy,” she rhymes, according to BET sources.
This is no surprise of Minaj, given that she “has previously expressed her disdain for the Obama administration’s handling of the economy and health care” to BET reporters. Minaj’s statement has many fans confused as to why she would make such a statement on a song where everyone can hear it. Most Black people are in fact Obama supporters, so to see such a phenomenal artist make such a statement about a man who has tried his best to make this country thrive, is disrespectful in the eyes of many.
Whether or not Nicki Minaj is a Republican or not, many fans agree that she should have kept her personal and political opinions to herself, as most entertainers tend to do. Do you think that Minaj really meant exactly what she said, or do you think that she is trying her best to spark up a debate before the election? The star has yet to comment on the issue.Tags: Hip-Hop, Lil' Wayne, Mercy, Mitt Romney, Nicki Minaj, obama, republican, YMCMB
