Michelle Obama to release rap album

You have to be kidding



http://www.thedailybeast.com/article...arrassing.html

Quote:
When Michelle Obama launched her signature initiative, the Lets Move! campaign, during her first term as First Lady, it was none other than Beyonce; who recorded a song and filmed a music video to help her promote it. The good old days.

It was announced Tuesday that Michelle is;releasing*8221; an album to promote her Lets Move! campaign. And none other than;Monifah is taking part. And Doug E. Fresh. And Ashanti. Not only is there no Beyonce;, but there;s no artist even approaching the A-list level we;ve come to expect from the Obamas*music initiatives;Aretha Franklin performing the National Anthem, Paul McCartney playing at the White House, Alicia Keys belting Obamas on Fire at the Inaugural Ball;on the albums track list. In fact, the level of talent is kind of embarrassing.

Mrs. Obama ;releasing an album is a bit misleading. The right word is ;curating or ;sponsoring the album. Called Songs for a Healthier America, the album features 19 songs by a range of hip-hop and R&B artists. Some of the artists youve never heard of: Los Barkers, The Happiness Club, Babi Floyd. Some of the artists you;ve heard of;like, years ago: Jordin Sparks, Ashanti, Run DMC.

In addition to spearheading the Lets Move! campaign the record is supporting, Obama will appear in ten of its music videos. Sadly, she wont be singing.
Its a noble release, of course. It will be distributed to students at schools in New York City and other major cities with the goal of inspiring them to live healthier lifestyles and, at the very least, get up and move to the music.

But there;s a scene in the HBO comedy Veep, in which Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who plays a frazzled, power-hungry vice-president, is told that the president would like her to head an anti-obesity initiative and she is mortified because she thinks no one will take her seriously. The track list for Obamas album is a hint at why she may think that.

I'm glad this is coming out if for no other reason than to watch Chase squirm over "rap music."

Rap's Bad Boy "EASY E" of N.W.A to Have Lunch With George Bush

http://articles.latimes.com/1991-03-...76_1_rap-group

Quote:
March 8, 1991

Guess who's scheduled to lunch with the President of the United States today?

Compton's most notorious rap entrepreneur, Eric Wright--better known as Eazy-E, founder of the controversial rap group N.W.A.

Wright, who also owns Hollywood-based Ruthless Records--has been invited by Republican Senate leader Bob Dole to attend an exclusive luncheon today in Washington where President Bush is scheduled to speak to the Republican Senatorial Inner Circle.

Wright, 23, a self-professed ex-gangster and former drug dealer, received his invitation to the closed-door fund-raiser after he contributed $2,490 to the Republican Party at the urging of Sen. Phil Gramm (R-Texas).

This is ridiculous. Politics aside it makes America look bad.

The most disturbing this about this thread is that borderline-obese kid trying to do the lawn-sprinkler dance move in OP's picture.

Hahahah how has this not been mentioned yet? E46 is slipping. And I agree, I don't care who the first lady is, she should most definitely not be making a rap album lol.

Playing devil's advocate here.

If she's not using tax payer's money to develop this album and is trying to promote health by using a medium to reach a certain audience, then why not?

I agree it's not the norm and unorthodox, but hey it's 2013.

I too think this is silly but it doesn't affect me at all. I think it will make America look bad if conservative media (Fox News, etc) spins this and plays down the fact she's trying to promote health.

If you get past Chase's thread title and read the article, it says Mrs Obama is technically sponsoring/promoting the album, not releasing an album.

Thoughts?

Nothing borderline about that kid being obese.
