On Monday CNN matter-of-factly reported that recording mogul Jay Z will be headlining a concert for Hillary Clinton in Cleveland between now and Election Day. “The event — which aides expect will draw thousands,” the article explains, ” is part of an ongoing series of concerts that aim to motivate young people to turn out for Clinton the way they turned out for Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012.”
Sounds innocent enough. So which of the rapper’s many hits does he plan on performing to rock the vote? I’m sure Team Hillary is keeping its collective fingers and toes crossed that he doesn’t do “Bitches and Sisters.” The lyrics, which would make a longshoreman blush, include some pretty unflattering observations about women, their role as sex partners (if “partner” is the right word), and the n-word. The last two lines get personal:
Sisters love Jay cuz they know how ‘Hov is
I love my sisters, I don’t love no bitch.
The Clinton campaign is probably safe in assuming “Jay” won’t be rapping “That’s My Bitch,” which he did as a duo with another hip-hop luminary, Kanye West.
In case the irony escaped you, this media event will occur even as Team Clinton redoubles its effort to distort Donald Trump’s “nasty woman” comment.
