Big Boi Did Not Vote for Obama

Big Boi did not vote for Obama

Many Obama supporters (read: blacks) were shocked at the news that superstar rapper Big Boi, of multi-platinum rap group Outkast, did not vote for President Obama in the November elections.

“I voted for Gary Johnson,” the Grammy-award winning rapper told Alyona Minkovski on Huffpost Live Friday. Patton recounted how he had to set a woman straight who thought he voted his skin color instead of his conscience.

“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. 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.”

The rapper whose real name is Antwan Andrew Patton said he voted Libertarian.

“Yes, I’m a Libertarian,” Patton admitted. “I’m liberty, justice for all, liberty for all. I’m really pro-people, pro-freedom, and, you know, this is all about positivity.”

I have a newfound respect for Mr. Patton. He went against the status quo — which a lot of rappers are afraid to do.

      Sunkissed404 says:

      I mean…Vote for whoever you vote for, but I really don’t think he voted for Johnson for real. The quote reads:

      ““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. 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’.”

      In the quote, he said “just to let her know he was on his Ps and Qs”, etc. I really feel like he just stated that to the woman to make a point to her; that he studied other presidential candidates before voting (Which is still a good thing). He might be a Libertarian, but he still may not have voted for dude. Either way, I’m still a fan. Althoooough, back in his Southern Playalistic days, one of them had this verse in Get up, Get Out, and Get Something…

      ==> “Y’all tellin me that I need to get out and vote, huh. Why?
      Ain’t nobody black runnin but crackers, so, why I got to register?”
