Lil Wayne & Romney: Rapper, DJ Drama Mock 'Mitt Romney' On 'Cashed Out' (AUDIO) (UPDATED)

Rate this Entry
Add Lil Wayne to the list of rappers unimpressed with Mitt Romney's personal finance decisions. Weezy took a quick shot at the GOP presidential hopeful on "Cashed Out," a song off the rapper's maligned mixtape, Dedication 4.
"Cashed Out" is a cover of "Cashing Out," by a track by southern rapper Ca$h Out.Cheap Beats If that seems redundant, it is -- Wayne's Dedication mixtape series features the Young Money Cash Monday Billionaires label boss doing his best to outdo other performers on their own beats. (Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.)
Wayne's version starts with the following intro (voiced by DJ Drama): "As another election year upon us. This last four years has been good to me. A couple of dollars in a couple different bank acccounts. Some here, some off shore. N---a call me Mitt Dram-Ney!"
The Philadelphia-born DJ Drama has been known to use presidents' names before (he also goes by Barack O'Drama).
Elsewhere in politics and hip-hop: Nicki Minaj appeared to endorse Romney, and President Obama himself set the record straight. Kanye West also took a shot at Romney, claiming that the candidate "don't pay no tax" on a song off Cruel Summer. One imagines a slightly higher-level conversation took place at Jay-Z's 40/40 club, where the president attended a fundraiser hosted by Jay and Beyonce, hip-hop's royal couple. In the other corner, Lupe Fiasco said he wasn't going to vote, and went on to say that Obama only really needed "white people" to vote for him anyway.
In an unaired excerpt from an interview with "60 Minutes," President Obama stood by his campaign advertising, admitting that while some spots can "go overboard," most focus on the critical differences between the president and Republican opponent Mitt Romney.
When Cheap Beats By Dre asked by CBS' Steve Kroft about the "nasty and negative" campaign ads run under his name, Obama said that most of them simply point out areas where he and Romney differ on how they believe the country should be run.
"Do we see sometimes us going overboard in our campaign-- mistakes that are made, or areas where there's no doubt that somebody could dispute how we are presenting things? That happens in politics," Obama said.
Obama continued: "The truth of the matter is that most of the time we're having a vigorous debate about a vision for the country, and there's a lot at stake in this election. So is it going to be sharp sometimes? Absolutely."
Both Obama and Romney have come under fire for using false or misleading statements in campaign advertisements. However, as the Los Angeles Times pointed out, the boost from buzz around controversial ads can often outweigh the merits of factual accuracy.
One notable example came from the pro-Obama super PAC Priorities USA, which produced an ad linking a woman's death to Bain Capital closing a steel plant. The spot set off a rash of criticism after many pointed out its inaccuracies. While the Obama campaign claimed no affiliation with the ad or the super PAC, the attention generated by news reports on the controversy gave the spot a huge bump in online viewers.
Before they were walking red carpets and taking home Emmys, stars were mugging for their yearbook photos. Can you guess who these two stars are?
None other than Steve Buscemi and Kathy Bates.
Buscemi is up for his fifth Emmy, the second for "Boardwalk Empire." He's seen here as a senior at Valley Stream Central High School in New York in 1975.
Bates, who is nominated for Best Actress in a Drama Series, already took home Cheap Dr Dre Beats an Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for playing Charlie Harper's ghost on "Two and a Half Men." She's seen here as a senior at White Station High School in Memphis, Tennessee in 1966.
