Oh Nicki Minaj. The colorful wig-wearing rapper is typically known for her out-of-the-box fashion as well as her animated, sometimes questionable lyrics. In one of her latest tunes, she’s labeled herself a Republican. Yes, the Harajuku Barbie is a Mitt Romney supporter. Nicki appears on  Lil’ Wayne’s  “Dedicated 4” mixtape version of Kanye West’s braggadocious summer hit “Mercy,” reinforcing her money-loving, welfare dissing perspective on the economy. She raps, “I’m a Republican voting for Mitt Romney, you lazy b——s is f—— up the economy.”

Well, there you have it. Not every black superstar stands in support of President Obama. It’s refreshing to hear Nicki rap with gusto, since it’s something we haven’t heard a lot of lately, according to her critics. With crossover Pop hits like, “Super Bass,” “Starships” and the like, Hip Hop purists have only complained about Nicki’s adopted bubblegum gimmicks.

Nicki’s not leaving the listening public complaint-less. The “Pound The Alarm” rapper keeps her name (wrapped in complaints) in our mouths with her controversial Republican flag-waving line in the “Mercy” remix.

Check out these lyrics that prove that Nicki Minaj is about that Republican life:

1. Republicans are all about making and spending big bucks:

Money so offensive, n*ggas call me Elway

If I needed money, I would be up in the bank

The crib got exotic fishes in the tank

The 24 gold karat, dishes in the sank

Them bum b*tches just be taking pictures when they plank

You wanna gimme money, gimme money, gimme money uhh

I’m up in Hong Kong rocking Shojono Tomo

Lobster, sushi rolls with a side of soy sauce

Chopsticks, you know we don’t give a fork

-“Gimme Money” Ester Dean ft. Nicki Minaj

2. Republicans are all about religious freedom:

Religious like the preachers

Came here to warn ya

Listen bitches I’m the teacher

-Dead Wrong” Nicki Minaj

3. Republicans are all about pro life:

All these b*tches is my sons

and I’ma go and get some bibs for ’em

a couple formulas, little pretty lids on ’em

-“Did It On ‘Em” Nicki Minaj

4. Republicans are all about no welfare:

“I ain’t mad Ma, I see you with your bummy swag

I’m in that money green Jag lot of money bags,

I told Khaled that you the best but I’m the bestest

Better run for cover if your name is on my checklist

You can talk slick all the way down to the welfare

As the IRS bitch I’m paying for your healthcare

-“All I Do Is Win” -DJ Khaled ft. Nicki Minaj


(I don’t know what layaway look like!)

(Bitch, I can’t even spell welfare!)

-“Did It On ‘Em” Nicki Minaj (ad libs)

5. Republicans are all about no tax for the wealthy:

Talkin’ ’bout money, we could have a conversation

Top five tax bracket in the population

Hatin’ and I know they got a reason why

I ain’t got to wonder if I want to lease or buy

            -“Muny” Nicki Minaj
