Big Boi: Liberty not Obama

Oftentimes we assume that everyone in the entertainment industry is a liberal, seeing that their messages in songs, films, etc. are liberal. This general assumption is more true than not, but there are a number of exceptions.

Consider Big Boi , a rapper, songwriter, producer, and minor actor. (Perhaps most noted for his work with André 3000 in Outkast)

Recently in an interview with Pitchfork Magazine Big Boi outlined his opinion on government, Obama, and how both of them are in opposition to the American people.

We thought you might like to see an excerpt from his interview:

Pitchfork: You had a few things to say about Obama on Sir Lucious, but it was recorded before he became president. And there was your song ”Sumthin’s Gotta Give with Mary J. Blige where she sang about cheering for Obama…

BB: I didn’t tell her to do that.

Pitchfork: No? She just did it?

BB: On my damn record. I had a problem with it. I’m not pro-government at all, I’m pro-people. Our freedoms are getting taken away every day with things that people aren’t aware of, like the [National Defense Authorization Act]. I don’t care who the president is– it ain’t just all about who’s black or who’s white or who’s Republican or Democrat, it’s about who is for the betterment of people, period.

Pitchfork: Do you have any feelings about Obama’s first term now that he’s been re-elected?

BB: Nope. What did he do? They say he’s trying to clean up a mess, right? Well, he needs a big-ass broom, and he gotta keep on sweeping. I ain’t on nobody’s team, you feel me? I’m about the American people.
