Congressional Representative Todd Akin releases rap album with Eminem
Fans of Todd Akin and misogyny are expected to download the Congressional Representative's new rap album with Eminem in record numbers. Akin recorded "Incumbent4Life," which debuts today, in a 72-hour recording session at a Nashville recording studio. The release has been highly anticipated since Akin generated controversy with the album's first single, on which he raps about what he calls "legitimate rape." Many Republicans, who have a history of denouncing violence and misogyny in rap music, have been curiously supportive of the album. Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee gave it five mics and said "this record combines the visceral rage of the legislative chamber with an aura of brutal gangsterism." On the album, Akin also boasts about voting against federally-funded school breakfasts and lunches for poor children. On another track he calls student loans "a stage-three cancer," rhyming the phrase with "Socialism enhancer" and "Tea Party romancer." The record features a guest appearance by Tennessee state senator Lil Campy, who successfully rhymes "AIDS came from a monkey" with "my beats is hella funky."
