50 to Hillary: I'm feelin' you

"I'd like to see Hillary Clinton be president. It would be nice to see a woman be the actual president and ... this is a way for us to have Bill Clinton be president again, and he did a great job during his term," that's 50 aka Ferrari F-50 giving Senator Hillary Clinton a ringing endorsement for the presidency.

Ben Smith from the Politico notes that "backpack rappers" (unsigned, mixtape artists) are reportedly pulling for Sen. Obama, while more established stars like Mr. Cent prefer Sen. Clinton-- which, Smith says, "has a certain logic to it."

For her part, Sen. Clinton says 50's always been her favorite rapper, and his romantic ode "Thug Love" always "hit close to home." While we can only speculate what the Senator meant by that comment, I think the following lyrics say it all:

Ay yo I treat you like you need to be treated like you're special
Tie your hands to the bedpost when I caress you
When I met you it was Guess and Gap
Now it's Gucci and Prada
Took you from being a nine to being a dime
You complain that we don't spend time
When I'm OT on the grind going hard for mine
Yo when shorty say she hate me
You know she mean she love me
When she play me close at the bar
That mean she want some Bubbly

What is with the dellusional belief that Bill Clinton's presidency had a positive effect on African Americans? Welfare Reform. Let me sign legislation that was comepletly high-jacked by the most conservative Republicans, which strips people of benefits while not creating job training programs that would get them jobs they can actually live on (not 5.15 an hour at mcDonalds) and then have people claim I am the only "Black" president. What a joke.

The real joke is to create a liberal program that, as a result, ignites a spike in out-of-wedlock births, helps increase Black unemployment, creates a paternalistic government while not strengthening Black families and allowing for a modern-day plantation system known as "projects" to become the norm for generations of Blacks. No Democrat tried harder than Bubba to rememdy all this. He'll always be my nigga.
