Â I have to admit after his stunning victory in South Carolina, I was ready to proclaim Newt Gingrich a â€œpimp,â€ and I still may.
However, if you needed further proof that modern Hip Hop is as easy to copyÂ as a Dr. Seuss rhyme and in the worst period of decline in its history, then you’ve gotta check outÂ this little gem.
Three teens from Florida actually pulled together a rhyme called â€œHoot for Newt,â€ this past weekend.
With a chorus of: â€œyeah hoot, hoot, hoot. Hey everybody vote for Newt,â€ three 18-year-oldâ€™s from St. Lucie shoved their demo at the Newtster before a speech.
The trio, an aspiring rock band, reportedly wrote the song in one night and it showed. Sing-songy and just wrong, the three should have stuck to the traditional stuff with their rancid rap, that featured such wick-wack rhymes like: Â â€œObama â€˜bout to step out the White House, Gingrich getting ready to get in the White House..â€ and Â â€œHoot, hoot, hoot. Hey everybody vote for Newt,”Â the likes of Jay-Z and Common donâ€™t have to worry about losing their spot in the culture, but I guess when you dumb down something you open yourself up to this crap.
One picture with Newt later, the three were not able to perform their song at an actual Gingrich rally, but were actively trying to find a way to publicly perform theirÂ – umm “master piece.”
I guess it really is hard out here for a pimp.
