Although he is not quite old enough to vote in next month’s presidential election, Chicago rapper Chief Keef is letting the world know he is fully behind President Barack Obama staying in office.
Taking to Twitter, the 17 year-old rapper vouched for his fellow Chicago representer.
“I love Obama.”
“#VoteBarackFromDaBlock http://instagr.am/p/RNxcv0yQRe/,” Keef tweeted October 25th with a link showing President Obama throwing up the dynasty sign with the caption “99 Problems But Mitt Ain’t One.” (Chief Keef’s Twitter)
Recently, a Keef-inspired anti-Mitt Romney t-shirt hit the retail market.
If you like Chief Keef’s “I Don’t Like,” and hate Mitt Romney, here’s something that’s likely relevant to your interests: From a group of creative designers based in Atlanta, it’s called the “That Mitt I Don’t Like” T-shirt. We can’t tell you if Chief Keef likes it, but life is full of little mysteries so get used to it. John Searles, Aaron Rhodan, and Julian Streete reportedly designed the shirt together, as the trio had been trying to come up with a collaborative project to work on together since 2009. (Complex)
Around mid-September, comedian Iman Crosson also drew inspiration from Chief Keef with his “I Don’t Like” spoof.
Well, someone has found a way to connect President Obama to Chicago’s emerging school of gangsta rap. Comedian Iman Crosson, who has gained fame for his Obama impression under the named “Alphacat,” recorded this video of Obama delivering his Democratic National Convention acceptance speech to the tune of Chief Keef’s “I Don’t Like.” “Romney’s campaign…that’s that stuff I don’t like/Lyin’ Republicans…that’s that stuff I don’t like/The Tea Party…that’s that stuff I don’t like/Mitt Romney’s face/That’s that..that’s that stuff I don’t like.” (NBC Chicago)
President Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney had their final debate earlier this week.
The most striking fact about last night’s foreign policy debate was how narrow the differences are between President Obama and his challenger, Mitt Romney. Our sense is that Romney would not be dangerous as a commander in chief. But he did nothing to tarnish Obama’s tangible accomplishments — ending the Iraq war, finding a way out of Afghanistan, killing Osama bin Laden and crippling al Qaeda. So our verdict is the debate was a win for Obama, not by knockout but on points. (Star-Ledger)
