As rare as it is, it’s so refreshing to hear common sense come out of the entertainment industry.  During an interview to discuss the release of his new album, rapper Big Boi made the following response when asked about the president:

“I’m not pro-government at all, I’m pro-people. Our freedoms are getting taken away every day with things that people aren’t aware of, like the [National Defense Authorization Act].  I don’t care who the president is–it ain’t just all about who’s black or who’s white or who’s Republican or Democrat, it’s about who is for the betterment of people, period. … I ain’t on nobody’s team, you feel me? I’m about the American people.”

The Washington Free Beacon reports,

Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors, the newest record from Atlanta rapper Big Boi, is set to drop next Tuesday. As Washington anticipates the album, a recent interview between the rapper and Pitchfork is gaining some attention.

When Big Boi was asked about a song off of his last album, the interview turned to politics and “his ambivalent feelings about President Obama”:

Pitchfork: You had a few things to say about Obama on Sir Lucious [Left Foot], but it was recorded before he became president. And there was your song ”Sumthin’s Gotta Give” with Mary J. Blige where she sang about cheering for Obama…

BB: I didn’t tell her to do that.

Pitchfork: No? She just did it?

BB: On my damn record. I had a problem with it.

If the rapper once supported the president, he is frustrated with him now.  The interview continues:

BB: I’m not pro-government at all, I’m pro-people. Our freedoms are getting taken away every day with things that people aren’t aware of, like the [National Defense Authorization Act]. I don’t care who the president is–it ain’t just all about who’s black or who’s white or who’s Republican or Democrat, it’s about who is for the betterment of people, period.

Pitchfork: Do you have any feelings about Obama’s first term now that he’s been re-elected?

BB: Nope. What did he do? They say he’s trying to clean up a mess, right? Well, he needs a big-ass broom, and he gotta keep on sweeping. I ain’t on nobody’s team, you feel me? I’m about the American people.

It’s too bad more of Big Boi’s contemporaries don’t share his sound judgment and mature ability to think for himself.

    ["Isaac [Brock] is cool, man, like cowboy cool. He showed
    me how to make a bong out of an apple and sh*t. For real.”]

    cause that’s illiterately funny..

  3. As Big Boi goes, so goes the country.

  4. Excuse my cynicism. The black community votes 90+% for Obama.

    “Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors, the newest record from Atlanta rapper Big Boi, is set to drop next Tuesday”.

    Why should I believe (with the 90+% certainty of black voting) that he is only trying to sell more records?

  5. ++

    first off, i don’t believe the vote was straight up so to speak..

    How black, Latino and Asian American
    voters delivered Obama’s victory

    that said, no one has any idea the number of people that constitutes the
    percentage of votes for any race, never mind blacks.. ie: 90% of those who
    voted taken from 13% of the population could amount anywhere from ie:
    10 people to 5 million people, also not to mention not all blacks are eligible
    to vote..

    and what’s their excuse??

  7. sounds like he voted for obama but wont admit it. He is for the american people? Nowhere does he say anything disparging against obama, he will probably vote for him again if obama decrees himself another term.

  8. OT –

    Michigan State Legislature Passes Right To Work Law

    Michigan. Michigan? Yes, Michigan. This will make them the 24th Right to Work state in America.
    [...]
    Governor Snyder had asked the House and Senate Republicans not to move forward with RTW legislation. However, the RTW proponents were encouraged to push forward after the pro-union initiatives were soundly defeated in the 2012 general election. One of the initiatives, Proposal 2, would have enshrined collective bargaining into the constitution. It was defeated 60%-40%.

    Hmmm…good news, but this only feeds my suspicions about Barry winning states he shouldn’t have legally

  9. The only rap record I have on my phone is “Golddigger” My wife put it on there to remind me. I may buy this guy’s record, or, maybe not.

  10. Watch he’ll get a “phone call” and walk this back any minute now….
