Obama Knows Who Lil’ Wayne Is?

9 07 2008

Who knew that Obama was up on Lil’ Wayne? Maybe his body man slip some Weezy F. Baby on his iPod when he was not looking.

At any rate, speaking before a packed audience in Georgia of adoring young black supporters he said “You are probably not that good a rapper. Maybe you are the next Lil’ Wayne, but probably not, in which case you need to stay in school.” Remarkably enough, the young folk cheered this very obvious yet somewhat sobering piece of advice.

Of course, if their mamas or pastors had told them that, which they probably do on a regular basis, I doubt the reception would have been the same. I think it would have elicited a real roll of the eyes.

I suppose you cannot separate the message from the messenger.
