Lil Wayne talks Tea Party

Posted By Google on Wed, Sep 14, 2011 at 5:42 PM

In a preview of his upcoming appearance in the October-November issue of Vibe, rapper Lil Wayne opened up about Monday's debate, proving, hey! this guy has more on his mind than being an alien, skateboarding and avoiding lawsuits (and with good reason, probably):

"You learn from what the right-wing is doing and you take something from it,” Wayne tells VIBE. “I feel like as a people the most that we can do is better ourselves and learn. Then look at yourself and ask ‘Am I the person they’re talking about or am I not?’ You have to make the most of who you are because the Republicans are never going to like us."

(There's a Kayne echo in there.) Wayne also said conservative critics of President Barack Obama are more concerned with his skin color (“I don’t think I have to say that for everybody to know that,” Wayne said) than his policies.

Not sure what Wayne was hoping to gleam from the debate, however, unless it was about affordable health care ("Boo!"), dying alone ("Hell yeah!"), or maybe his ears perked during a misplaced reference to Kurt Cobain (Wayne's hero — and apparently Jon Huntsman is a fan, too).

Meanwhile: Tha Carter IV trumped Watch The Throne in their opening weeks and had a dozen songs hitting the Billboard Hot 100, and Wayne was nominated for a billion BET Hip Hop Awards. All of this, obviously, is leading up to Dwayne Michael Carter's announcement he'll run for office.
