Yo yo, er’body listen up! What we got here is a new challenger on da streets. Eminem move aside, take back yo name Marshall Mathers cuz we got ourselves a new king o’ rap ‘ere. His name is Ben ‘Prez’ Carson, and he is gonna light this shit up!
Carson has released a new ad that will rock the radio waves. The plan: rap until the African-American vote comes home at sundown. If anyone could create a rap video and get away with it on the Republican side it would be Carson. His ability to slowly stumble over his pre-planned statements, the bio filled with stories of ‘so I cut the bitch open’ and the constant calls “Represent” before his speeches all prove just how well he will fit in the rap world.
Some people, mostly myself, see how much this ad will help boost his rating among African-Americans. Nothing brings people together like a good sing-a-long with the message, “Vote for me, vote for me, vote for me” (an actual quote).
After hearing how Carson plans to capture the hearts of his….I want to say fellow man, but seeing as he is trying to appeal to them with the music of their culture…It would be like Bush showing how white he is by playing Deep South banjo music with a jug and a washboard. At that point, I would start questioning if he was the right kind of white to be president. Unfortunately, the ex-neurosurgeon was lazy in how he operated on the rap. Instead of taking the mic himself, he let Aspiring Mogul use sound bites of previous speeches.
This is a shame, especially when you think of what Ben Carson might have meant when he said this in response to the ad,
“I support, you know, them in doing that. But, you know, I probably would have taken a little different approach,” he said.
A different approach? What do you mean Carson? Does this mean somewhere you have a rap of your own written about how you wish to be president? Did they, you know, shoot down your idea because, you know, you aren’t a professional rapper? Poor Ben Carson! All he wanted to do was rap alongside his idols Drake and Meek Mills, who are not only the greatest hip-hop artists, but also best friends.
Dr. Carson, I beg you to take time from your campaign to make your rap with your own lyrics. The world would benefit greatly from this rap in their homes and in their hearts. Who knows, maybe you would become internet famous! And they may even forget the fact that you have lied about so many biographical ‘facts’. I mean I know they are true, because I’ve been by your side since we were born, and I can vet that you were, in fact, a terrible student. So please Ben (wink!), create that video, record that rap for us. Because we are running low on reasons to laugh at Trump and could use a new funny man.
Your best friend,
Cameron ‘Bob’ Campbell
