Did Nicki Minaj Just Endorse Mitt Romney?

By: Jase Peeples

Nicki Minaj is the subject of controversial speculation after apparently endorsing Presidential Hopeful Mitt Romney on Lil Wayne’s Dedication 4 mixtape.

According to Rap Dose, the 27-year-old performer rapped the line, “I’m a Republican voting for Mitt Romney, you lazy bitches are fu*king up the economy,” on the track “Mercy,” part of Lil Wayne’s latest release.

However, like many of her fans, we’re not convinced the “Starships” singer’s lyric should be taken literally. Many have suggested Minaj was being sarcastic in her rap and though she did criticize Obama on the health-care system via Twitter back in June, she’s also been an enthusiastic supporter of the Commander-in-chief in the past.

Do you think Ms. Minaj has gone to the dark side, or is her latest rap simply a cleverly disguised backhand to the GOP?
