Obama is Here Video: Ludacris ; Bay Ridge Food Co-op



I ran into Ludacris in Three Jolly Pigeons, where he was playing poker with Hon Fong, Richard Martin, the Swede and the Green Hornet. I took the opportunity to congratulate Ludacris on his fine new video. He's pleased with the public reaction, and hopes to sing it at the Democratic Convention.

Ludacris “Obama Is Here” Lyrics

I’m back on it like I just signed my record deal
Yeah the best is here, the Bentley Coup paint is dripping wet, it got sex appeal
Never should have hated, You never should’ve doubted him
With a slot in the president’s iPod Obama shouted ‘em

Said I handle my biz and I’m one of his favorite rappers
Well give Luda a special pardon if I’m ever in the slammer
Better yet put me in office, make me your vice president
Hillary hated on you, so that bitch is irrelevant

Jesse talking slick and apologizing for what?
If you said it then you meant it how you want it head or gut?
And all you other politicians trying to hate on my man,
watch us win majority vote in every state on my man

You can’t stop what’s bout to happen, we bout to make history
The first black president is destined and it’s meant to be
The threats ain’t fazing us, the nooses or the jokes
So get off your ass, black people, it’s time to get out and vote!

Paint the White House black and I’m sure that’s got ‘em terrified
McCain don’t belong in any chair unless he’s paralyzed
Yeah I said it cause Bush is mentally handicapped
Ball up all of his speeches and just throw ‘em like candy wrap
’cause what you talking I hear nothing even relevant
and you the worst of all 43 presidents

Get out and vote or the end’ll be near
The world is ready for change because Obama is here
’cause Obama is here
The world is ready for change because Obama is here, yeah
cuz Obama is here

I cannot believe Phantom, and I thought you had some sense of a brain that you wasted screen space on that Ludacris trash.

We are ready for change, but not from an Obama-nation.

You mean you don't like ludacris?

He's one of my favorite artists, him and Mario Lanza

The Green Hornet said...

The Phantom forgot to mention that I won the poker game and I had to buy everyone drinks. Boy that Richard can drink too!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I even had to give the Swede a few bucks so he could get home.

Im sorry Luda but I dont think they will let you sing that song at a political convention ...are you serious he said hilary is a bitch....and the things he said about mccain Obama said that song is offensive and he should be ashamed of himself. I like Obama and the song is OK but that song just made it harder for Obama to get in office considering that he said Luda is on of his favorite rap artist and that he has his songs on his ipod.

this song is all over the media why would he make something like this and put it out while Obama is running for president????????
