Nicki Minaj Is “A Republican Voting For Mitt Romney” In Lil Wayne’s “Mercy” Remix

The ever-prolific Lil Wayne dropped his latest free mixtape Dedication 4 on Labor Day (Sep. 3), but it’s Nicki Minaj getting all the buzz thanks to her politically-minded verse on Lil Tunechi’s “Mercy” remix. Over Kanye‘s G.O.O.D. Music beat, Minaj boasts about her wealth before sneering “I’m a Republican voting for Mitt Romney, you lazy bitches is fucking up the economy.” This isn’t the first time Minaj has gotten political. Previously, she tweeted at the President regarding his healthcare reforms, asking for universal free healthcare. We’re no political wonks, but we’re pretty sure that isn’t part of Romney’s platform. Hear Nicki’s snippet after the jump.

We’re reluctant to call this a true endorsement, but it would certainly diversify Romney’s field of music backers, which currently includes the likes of Kid Rock and Lynyrd Skynyrd. It’s worth noting that after Nicki’s verse, Lil Wayne brought the song into more familiar territory by dropping a string full of — what else? — clever and hilariously filthy sexual innuendo. Head over to Rap-Up to hear the full song.
