Grammy-winning rapper Ludacris is cashing in on Tiger Woods‘ publicized affairs by releasing a parody track based on the situation called “Sexting.”
On the track, Luda places himself in the same situation as the famed golf star.
Produced by the Neptunes, the track finds Luda satirizing Woods’ stay in sex rehab by imagining a conversation with the teacher who’s trying to help him get “unhooked on a**”. Unfortunately, the beat doesn’t provide much of a lift — sorry to disappoint anyone who was hoping for another “Money Maker”. “Hey this is Luda, okay? I need you to do me a ‘huge’ favor. Um, ca-can you please take your name off of your phone? My girl went through my cell phone and she may be calling you. So if you can please take your name off of that and just have it as a number on the voicemail, okay? You gotta do this for me. Huge. Quickly!” (Idolator)
New York rapper Maino recently released a Woods-based track called “Get Em Tiger” last December.
<”I got women in the ‘burbs, women in the hood,” Maino raps. “Yeah my wifey mad ’cause she knows I’m no good/I’m just a dog, I’d be faithful if I could/But I’m Tiger Woods, yep, I’m Tiger Woods…I need help because I know I got a problem, every bad b*tch I come across, I think I want them/Look at how I roll when I see ‘em/Then I’m on ‘em, cup full of liquor, pocket full of condoms…” (“Get Em Tiger”)
Despite playing on Woods’ name, Maino later said he was merely using the golfer as a metaphor.
“You may think it’s about Tiger Woods, but it’s really not. It’s more about me. … I used Tiger Woods as a metaphor for me being a cheater. This is the anthem to all men who deal with a lot of women,” said Maino, 36. “This is the anthem for us. When I first heard about the situation that Tiger Woods was going through, I said, ‘Man, he’s getting crucified for the stuff that I do…It couldn’t wait – Tiger Woods is fresh in the news right now…It’s not me coming to the defense of him. We all men. We all human. All I’m saying is I understand.” (New York Daily News)
Last Friday, Tiger released a statement speaking on his family problems.
“While I have always tried to be private, I have a few things to say. Elin and i have started to work though this. As she has told me, my real apology to her will not be in words but in action, however what we say to each other will be private. I am also aware of the pain I have caused everyone in this room I have let you down and let down my fans, for many my behavior has been a major disappointment, my behavior has caused considerable worry to my business partners ,and everyone involved in my business, but most importantly to the young people we influence, I apologize.” (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)
