Nicki Minaj, Romney Supporter?

September 4, 2012
AP969443464169.jpgPaul Ryan's favorite band, Rage Against the Machine, may really dislike his politics, but the Romney-Ryan ticket hasn't totally fallen out of favor with edgy popular music.

Rapper Nicki Minaj, as it turns out, is a Mitt Romney supporter

In a song on on Lil' Wayne's "Dedication 4" mixtape, Minaj raps an expletive-laden line in which she reveals her Republican politics and her plan to vote Romney because of the previous administration's handling of the economy (or, as she puts it: "I'm a Republican voting for Mitt Romney, you lazy b------ are f------ up the economy."). So, yeah, it's not the most useful endorsement.

Web site Rap Dose uncovered the line in the song "Mercy." You can listen to the very not-safe-for-work song here.
