Is Nicki Minaj voting for Mitt Romney?

The Trinidadian-born rapper appears on Lil Wayne’s “Dedication 4,” the recently released fourth installment in his mixtape series and says “I’m a Republican voting for Mitt Romney, you lazy bitches are [expletive] up the economy.”

Minaj doesn’t follow up her “endorsement” with any other political thoughts, instead rhyming “economy” with “zombie,” Billboard.com points out.

Minaj has tweeted criticism for President Barack Obama in the past. But in that same tweet she also lobbied for universal healthcare hardly which hardly makes her sound like a Republican.

“What’s sad is that when Yvette was bringing home the bacon, the gov’t was probably taking millions. On her deathbed though, #Nowheretobefound,” she wrote. “That should be a God given right! Even with Obama Care, too much involved. Just give FREE health care to all. @BarackObama what can we do?”

RapDose, which first pointed out the lyrics on Monday, pointed out Minaj rapped her lyrics over beats produced by Kanye West.

West attended the 2008 Democratic National Convention in Denver in support of President Obama.

“It’s an incredible time to be around. I wish my momma could have seen this day,” West said at the DNC in 2008.
