Unless you’ve been living under a rock, we’re sure you’ve listed to Lil Wayne‘s Dedication 4 mixtape. Well you may have missed it, but on the 5th track, “Mercy”, Nicki Minaj raps, “I’m a Republican voting for Mitt Romney, you lazy bitches is f—ing up the economy.” Strong words. It’s funny to note that Nicki’s lyrics go over beats made by Kanye West, who is an avid supporter of President Obama. Minaj hasn’t been very happy with the way Obama is handling the country’s healthcare system, and it seems like she thinks Romney might do a better job.
After the death of Moesha star Yvette Wilson, Nicki vented her frustrations with our healthcare system via Twitter. Wilson’s family had been struggling for months before the actress’ death to pay the her medical bills. The rapstress tweeted, “What’s sad is that when Yvette was bringing home the bacon, the gov’t was probably taking millions. On her deathbed though, #Nowheretobefound. That should be a God given right! Even with Obama Care, too much involved. Just give FREE health care to all. @BarackObama what can we do? @BarackObama I wouldn’t mind the millions they took if it was going to healthcare. Why should a poor person struggle to pay for MEDS sir?”
