Daddy Yankee Endorses McCain, Spreads Secret Republican Messages Through Lyrics
Reggaeton star Daddy Yankee endorsed McCain at Central High School in Phoenix, AZ earlier today. Guess who the kids were more excited to see: the dude who collaborated with Lil Jon or the man known as Ol' John. After Yankee's awkward campaign appearance, and a lyrical analysis, we should have known Daddy Yankee was a Republican all along.
How deep are Daddy's rightest roots? Well, his biggest hit "Gasolina" is all about doing anything for oil, no matter how poorly planned, risky and stupid.
A ella le gusta la gasolina (dame mas gasolina!!)
Como le encanta la gasolina (dame mas gasolina!!)
In "Machete," he proves he's not afraid of making preemptive acts of force to assert his dominance and superiority.
Te pones picua
Te llevo en la grúa
Te aplico la cortizona en la zona
Para que sientas mi nivel de testosterona
Píllala contra el muro!
He has an interest in material things, and thinks people should be responsible for making their own success independent of the government as proven in "Like You"
Come on cop me now, I got this game locked down
What you know about big thinged, chrome wheels, own bills
Me and you holding it down, its all real
Or maybe all these songs are about fucking and thug love. Who knows? Just remember this election day, while you're at your mysterious touch pad station, remember who Daddy Yankee would vote for. Then think about how stupid it would be to follow the advice of a reggaeton star on important political matters.
