Big Boi Reveals He Didn't Vote For President Obama

Big Boi explains his political beliefs.

Contrary to the support President Barack Obama has received from artists such as Jay-Z, Young Jeezy, and Common, not every emcee voted Democrat in 2012.

In an interview with Huff Post Live, Big Boi recalled an instant when someone assumed that he voted for Obama.

"Well, I was, you know, leaving to go out of town, and it was a lady -- a Caucasian lady -- and she was like, 'Oh yeah, congratulations on y'all win last night,' you know, with like an attitude," remembered Sir Lucious Left Foot. "And, you know, just to let her know I was on my P's and Q's, I was like, 'I don't know what you talkin' bout, I voted for Gary Johnson.' And she looked shocked to even know that I knew there were other candidates on the ballot, you know what I’m saying? So, you can't judge a book by its cover."

Daddy Fat Sax explained his political stance. "I’m a Libertarian. I’m liberty, justice for all, liberty for all. I’m really pro-people, pro-freedom, and, you know, this is all about positivity. Like, you know, I have nothing against the president at all, you know, he's a nice guy, but, it’s just, you know, the things that they're standing on right now just didn't agree with me. Anything that benefits the public and not just big banking, that's what I'm with."

    "People knew nothing about Romney" They knew enough not to make him president.

    "Implying that just because someone can vote that means they automatically know what they are doing. LOL" Alot of people spent time listening and studying up on Obama before the re-election. If someone honestly believed he could do even half of what he said he would then yes I would say they know more than some cornball rapper who is just trying to make headlines by going againsn't the grain.

    Alot of our people don`t realize that white racism is more dangerous today cause its more covert and more sophisticated.The worst type of racism is the one you can`t see cause you let your guard down and are easily manipulated.We really need our own major media sources to expose these sneaky demons tactics and conspiracies against us.

    Thats whats up, smart dude. Thats was actually the best candidate to be honest, to bad the media like to glorify only two though.

    I guess the stereotypes go both ways. Glad to see a Big Boi stand up for his beliefs.

    Any rich black rapper would be a fool to vote for Obama, because he taxes rich people. That's like poor white person voting Republican.

      Work under the table then.(aka Cash Paying Jobs-Note that drug dealing usually leads to jail time or end of life.) +++++++++++ LOL @ THIS FCUKBOI MANY CONSTRUCTION & RESTAURANT JOBS R UNDER THE TABLE HO PEOPLE GETTING MONEY IN STATES THAT HAVE LOTTERY MACHINES IS UNDER THE TABLE UNTAXED MONEY UNTIL IT'S A CERTAIN AMOUNT STFU HO

    • Anonymous

      Lol. Not everyone gets tax returns buddy. If you make a decent amount you don't get a return, or if you do, it's nothing compared to what you paid in. Successful people in the top tax brackets who own their own business will pay over 50% in taxes on every penny they earn considering all taxes.

    • lol

      ??? because he taxes rich people? Everybody gets taxed, its not necessarily a bad thing, There is a thing called Tax Returns. Don't feel like the tax thing is fair? Work under the table then.(aka Cash Paying Jobs-Note that drug dealing usually leads to jail time or end of life.)

    • shame

      so only poor people should vote for him? Last I checked he had the most amount of money raised by multiple donors (not a few rich men like Sharon, Koch brothers etc) and they were surely not mostly black. Rich white people. Because its more than taxation. Go find a better site to read from. Big boi has a stance, but Gary Johnson though?? I would have been on a shit ticket, and he would have voted for me then.

    • The Don

      Yoooo i always thought that too. but its cause they come from the hood and rap about all that gangster and struggle shit. gangster rappers main audience are real street niggas like me so them voting for what Romney and Republicans believe in could be career suicide.

      Yawn. Your illiterate half-wit self clearly ignored all the other issues I stated. Koolaid? Lol sorry but you've clearly mistaken me for one of your kind. No not black, but a fucking sheep. Fox news? Yea no. Try natural news dot com and infowars. Dianne Fienstein is trying to pass her proposal which is the attempt to steadily ban all forms of fire arms with the start of AR's. The shooting of schools and movie theaters were orchestrated by the government to gather the sympathy of dumb mother fuckers like you and your family so you accept their propaganda and don't protest, which will result in a civil war. Coming at me telling me to stop watching fox so you come across as intelligent. I am a journalist myself. Fuck outta here with that bullshit and go lower your IQ with some fluoride while cleaning your nasty mouth.

    • anan

      ^^^ "Banning of the 2nd Amendment" What the hell are you talking about?? Obama hasn't passed any new legislation on guns or gun control. If anything he's made it easier to purchase guns AND he's helped boost gun sales becase morons like you think he's coming after them. Dumbass. Do your research. Turn off Fox. Quit drinking the kool aid. Actually read legitimate sources of news. Public broadcasting.

    I like Johnson's position on drugs, Patriot Act, foreign policy, etc, as much as anyone, but you need to take a split-second look at how austerity cuts are affecting Europe to see how bad his economic plan would kill the US economy

    • Anonymous

      Obviously in short term thinking the cuts would have a negative affect on the economy but thinking long term it will be good for the economy to not have the debt looming. You can't just keep owing more and more and expect everything to be fine.

    "Big Boi is intelligent" Not on ESPN First Take he wasn't, but that's another story. Regardless of what Obama is doing, or what Romney would have done, these rappers slay with me their stances. So Big Boi somehow knows more than the millions of people who sincerely voted for Obama? Alot of them don't have his money or fame, so I hold their vote in slightly higher regard than Big Boi's simply because rappers love taking stands againsn't anything or anyone that has authority. Like if to say were not stupid just cause we rap. I respect Big Boi having an opinion, but he knew Gary Johnson had no shot, so why come out and denounce Obama simply because he's not running things the way you think he should.

      he's allowed to vote for whoever he wants to, regardless of who has a greater chance of winning. it's a democracy you idiot

      because obama is killing this great country and he wants you to know he wasnt a part to him getting elected

  • Anonymous

    What an intelligent concept not voting for a black president just because he's black! Gary Johnson was going to make huge cuts and it would have been difficult, but it is what's needed. Meanwhile Obama is driving the economy downhill with no regard for the national debt. Romney meanwhile is completely incompetent and is strongly against gay marriage and weed legalization so it would be difficult for him to win plus he wouldn't have gotten rid of all the debt like Johson. Big Boi is intelligent.

    Why am I not surprised fickle hip hip fans don't know about a guy that wanted to balance the budget, audit the fed, end the war on drugs, require wars to be declared by congress, end the war on terror, repeal draconian government measures, end the police state (ie. TSA), value integrity over political party, etc. Some of y'all dumb asses are the reason we have a 16+ trillion debt, bubbles, more enemies than ever before, debt ceiling that keeps increasing, a blatantly obvious connection between lobbyists and government (ie. Obama having Mosontano & Goldman & Sachs individuals in his administration).

  • dadukestin

    alright big boi is defintly in GOAT after saying this. he's not a sheep he does his own thing. obama is an image not a president. if hilary wouldve won it would be the same. pupepts dont trust as far as you can throw them

  • rahrahrah

    I'm all for independent thought. If you want to support alternatives to our two party atrocity support them in a way that actually matters. Organize at the grassroots level instead of voting at the presidential level where it accomplishes absolutely nothing other than giving you a soap box.
