AUG 6, 2012 – Rapper Nicki Manaj, who raised eyebrows rapping an endorsement for Mitt Romney in the Lil' Wayne song "Mercy", has been exposed as not even being registered to vote; so she can't vote for either candidate. In the days after the "endorsement" being discovered, people bombarded her and after a quick Google search and research HipHopWired uncovered the fact she has never bothered to register to vote EVER in the 3 states she has lived in.
The "Mercy" remix has these lines in it:
"I got more money , in in my f*cking purse /Court side, you in the C Section, I'm with them bloods you you with the C Section /In Malibu I'm bout a sea section /And all these b*tches is my sons, yeah C-Section /I'm a Republican voting for Mitt Romney/You lazy b*tches is f*cking up the economy /Out in Miami I be chilling with a zombie /Diablo Alejandro de Mello Gandhi""
But many people in the entertainment field are scratching their head, because she supports Obamacare and called for free medical care for all on NecoleBitchie.com back in July. The Mitt Romney campaign is uneasy about the "endorsement", but being that the song lyrics don't make much sense, no one knows what is really going on in her motivation to rap that line. JTMP urges anyone who hasn't registered to vote to do it now; and make sure you check your state Voter ID (voter suppression) laws and assure you have all correct and necessary ID and documentation with you when you go to vote. Also, make sure your address and other information for your voter registration is up-to-date and correct. Sites that can help you:
