Obama says,"Luda… WTF?"

Ludacris raps for Obama (and even Obama isn’t happy)

Atlanta rapper Ludacris has thrown his support firmly behind presidential candidate Barack Obama via his latest recording, “Politics (Obama is Here)”

The problem?
The Obama camp isn’t exactly embracing the profanity laced song that also takes pokes at George W. Bush, Hillary Clinton and John McCain.
In past interviews, Obama has stated that he likes Luda’s music.
In the song, posted on youtube.com, Ludacris raps of himself: “You never should have doubted with a slot in the prez’s iPod/I’m one of his favorite rappers.” Later in the two minute song, he adds: “You can’t stop what’s about to happen/The first black president/We going to paint the White House black/The world is ready for change because Obama is here.”
In the rap, the performer who was born Chris Bridges, calls the current president “the worst,” refers to Clinton using a less than genteel definition of a female canine and mocks McCain’s age and suggests he needs a wheelchair.
On The Politico.com, political blogger Ben Smith reports that the Obama camp is condemning the song. The site posted the following quote from Obama spokesperson Bill Burton: “As Barack Obama has said many, many times in the past, rap lyrics today too often perpetuate misogyny, materialism, and degrading images that he doesn’t want his daughters or any children exposed to. This song is not only outrageously offensive to Senator Clinton, Reverend Jackson, Senator 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.”
“Are you serious?!” asked Atlantan DJ Drama when we rang him about the controversy Wednesday. He has included the track on his latest mixtape project, “Gangsta Grillz: The Preview,” a collaboration with Bridges. “Well, this involves two people I highly respect. And from a position of just believing in freedom of speech, I feel [Ludacris] expressed himself in a manner he felt necessary. I also know all eyes are on Barack Obama because of the position he’s in. So before someone like Fox News attaches him to it, [Obama] had to do he what he had to. I understand. I think Luda would understand. And it doesn’t change my opinion on who I’m going to vote for.”
Press reps for Obama did not immediately return our calls Wednesday.
Q100’s Bert Show first played the song for listeners Wednesday morning. Feedback was mixed.
On Wednesday afternoon, V-103 program director Reggie Rouse was just learning about the track and was headed to youtube for a listen.
Of the song’s chances of being added to his rotation, Rouse told the AJC: “I’m going to take a listen. But anything Luda does right now is going to be considered.”
When snatches of the lyrics were read to V103 morning man Frank Ski Wednesday, he laughed and said: “Wow, that would be Luda right there. His oratory skills are out of here. He’s amazing and he gets his point across. He’s speaking his mind and sparking some controversy. But music has always spoken out against politics. Look at what Public Enemy did way back. The difference with Luda is that he’s so crossover everyone hears what he has to say.”

Trick Daddy Responds To Allegations of Airing Out Ross

“We don’t deal with rap beef down here,” Trick told AllHipHop.com. “That’s not in our character. That’s not something we do. We’re the only city that ever gets compared to other people’s entire states. Whoever put my name in this is really attacking all of us.”

During a recent interview with Rick Ross circulating on the internet, an interviewer inquired about an alleged rift between the former Slip-n-Slide label mates.

During the clip, Ross is “informed” by the interviewer that “Trick Daddy accused [him] of working as a prison guard at one point.“

Despite having seen Ross’s heated response to the question, Trick maintains that there is no bad blood between the frequent collaborators, who spoke as recently as this week.

“I told Ross he needs to have better people around him,” Trick Daddy told AllHipHop.com. “He needs better publicists, so that he can avoid even being asked those type of funny questions. I been in this game for thirteen years, and anybody who’s ever listened to my music knows Trick Daddy is very smart. I know when somebody’s trying to use me and pull me into some s**t. But the people doing this need to understand what their words can do too. When you start talking about beef, and creating [situations] between people from the same hood, you gotta realize that that beef s**t can end with one man in jail and another man gone.”

The topic of Rick Ross’s past career has drawn responses from everyone from rappers Fabolous, Maino and The Clipse, to the real “Freeway” Ricky Ross, with many wondering what effect his denial would have on his career.

While Trick would not directly confirm any knowledge of the Def Jam rapper’s employment as a law enforcement officer, he did address the controversy.

“So what if he [was],” Trick asked. “That just means he avoided something a lot of us in the hood haven’t, including me. I’m not proud of being an ex-con. Now that means I always got one foot in and one foot on a banana peel. I’m not proud of the things I did to land in that position.”

Jewelry Man & The Rick Ross Controversy– Get Ya Clown On

Not preaching my nigg, just telling it like it is. Watch and enjoy… don’t be afraid, you’re in good company with the rest of us Mentally Endangered.

Got Money… And You Know It

I have to say that this video was a very good follow-up to A-Milli, and hopefully if you’re anything like me you see where this is going. Thank you Mr. Carter and Pain for a great summer… because everything else this season was pure bullsh-t. Enjoy!

Guestlist on this video’s pretty deep, and made plenty of sense to us. Let me know if you feel me on that one kiddies.

It’s Over? Already? This whole story slipped past us…

SHE is the vivacious Aussie girl who captured a city’s heart when a love-struck New York Romeo spotted her on the Subway and went to extraordinary lengths to track down his “dream girl”.
Camille Hayton says she is still recognised about three times a week on the streets of Manhattan as “that girl” and the question is always the same: so what happened?
Sadly for romantics the world over, there was no fairytale ending for Ms Hayton and 22-year-old Brooklyn web designer Patrick Moberg, the couple New Yorkers dubbed “the Subway sweethearts”.
“I say we dated for a while but now we’re just friends,” Ms Hayton, 23, said. “It’s really nice that people embraced the story. It is part of my life now.”
She said she dated Mr Moberg for about two months, but it just didn’t work out.
“I think the situation was so intense that it bonded us,” she said, adding it “bonded us in a way that you could mistake, I guess, for being more romantic than it was. I don’t know.
“But I wanted to give it a go so I didn’t wonder what if, what if?”
Ms Hayton, originally from the Melbourne suburb of Kew, is enjoying single life in New York, keeping busy with acting classes, working in two vintage clothing stores and as a waitress.
Last week she had a small role as a waitress in the long-running daytime soap As The World Turns and last year she was an extra in a “blink and you’d miss it” scene in the hit Sex And The City movie.
The budding actress plans to return to Australia in October to visit family and friends and enjoy Christmas at home.
The fresh-faced Aussie beauty captured the heart of New Yorkers and Mr Moberg when she was riding Manhattan’s No. 5 train last November.
Mr Moberg saw her and was struck by love at first sight. As he worked up the courage to talk to the mysterious brunette, he lost her in the crush of people getting off the Subway.
It was a fluke Ms Hayton was even on the Subway. She was travelling to a friend’s house to sleep on the couch after her group home, an 11-bedroom loft in the SoHo district, burned down on Halloween.
Smitten, Mr Moberg set out to find her in a city of more than eight million people and devoted a website to finding her, http://www.nygirlofmydreams.com/
On the site he drew a picture of Ms Hayton with a red flower in her “fancy braided” brown hair, blue shorts, blue leggings and rosy red cheeks.
His unlikely cyberspace search captivated New Yorkers, receiving coverage in the New York Post, on local Manhattan television stations and eventually around the globe.
One of Ms Hayton’s New York friends recognised her as the girl Mr Moberg was searching for and played matchmaker.
“I just can’t believe it happened. It feels like a long time ago,” Ms Hayton said.
