President Obama Sets It Straight W/ Nicki Minaj & She Thanks Him

Nicki Minaj sparked debate with her politically minded verse on the remix to “Mercy.” Now President Obama himself is speaking out about the Young Money rapper’s bars backing Mitt Romney.

“I’m a Republican, voting for Mitt Romney/ You lazy bitches is fu**in’ up the economy,” rhymes Nicki on the cut off Lil Wayne’s Dedication 4 mixtape.

While some interpreted it as an endorsement of the Republican candidate, Obama viewed it as her playing a character. “I’m not sure that’s actually what happened,” he said during an interview with Power 95.3’s “Obie and Lil Shawn Morning Show.” “I think she had a song on there, a little rap that said that, but she likes to play different characters, so I don’t know what’s going on there.”

Nicki thanked the President for getting her. “Ha! Thank you for understanding my creative humor & sarcasm Mr. President, the smart ones always do… *sends love & support* @BarackObama,” she tweeted.

She was also flattered that he would take the time to react to the rap. “Awesome! Now I can tell my grandchildren that the 1st black President of the United States took the time to address a Nicki Minaj question.”

While his daughters Sasha and Malia don’t listen to Nicki’s music, the First Couple does have hip-hop on their playlists. “We have a nice hip-hop collection on our iPods,” said Obama.
