Barack Obama and Ludacris

While running for the presidency in 2008, Barack Obama condemned a song released by the rapper Ludacris that praised the candidate and bashed competitor Hillary Clinton as “irrelevant.” In the lyrics of “Politics as Usual,” Ludacris says Republican candidate John McCain doesn’t belong in “any chair unless he’s paralyzed.” Obama called the lyrics “outrageously offensive,” despite his otherwise positive relationship with the hip-hop artist: “While Ludacris is a talented individual, he should be ashamed of these lyrics," an Obama campaign spokesman told the AP.
