Slim Thug told SOHH that he was inspired by Obama's powerful speeches.
"He sounds so intelligent and I really believe in him. From just how he spoke to me and when I sit there and watch his speeches it just really inspires me to be a better person. So I really believe he got that blessing and that power to reach so many people."
"His speeches was just so empowering. It's hard to deny that. He did a lot of things. I never actually paid attention to a campaign ever before but he was able to grasp my attention. Not just me a lot of my people around me. Through internet I was getting pages every day, updates of what's going on and what we need to do. He ran a brilliant campaign."
Last fall, Slim Thug spit some bars about Obama on "Do It For H Town" a song on Chamillionaire's Mixtape Messiah 4.
