The rapper's new track that was written to support the Democratic Party's president candidate doesn't impress the the politician who considered that it was too offensive.
Ludacris' attempts on sending his political view trough his songs lyrics failed to impress after the latest news stated that the words on his new song are being protested by many because it's considered too offensive. The new song "Politics as Usual" that the rapper penned to support Barack Obama received lots of critics including from Obama himself.
The controversial side from the rapper's lyrics is the part when he offended other politicians and presidential candidates, John McCain and Hillary Clinton and also current president George Bush. The rapper called Hillary "irrelevant", said that John doesn't belong in "any chair unless he's paralyzed" and that Bush is "mentally handicapped".
Meanwhile, showing his rejection to Ludacris' track, Obama through his representative sent an e-mail to the press writing, "This song is not only outrageously offensive to Sen. Clinton, Rev. Jackson, Sen. 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."
Ludacris' new track itself is one of the songs that he wrote for his latest mix-tape titled "Gangsta Grillz: The Preview" collaborating with DJ Drama. The tape was made as a preview before the release of his new studio album "Theater of the Mind", that hasn't had an exact release date yet.
