Dr. Ben Carson’s right wing Republican politics are diametrically opposed to rapper Eminem, but that didn’t stop him from using the Detroit MC’s music to announce his run for president.
In a move wrought with theater, Carson had a Black choir sing the chorus to “Lose Yourself” from Em’s semi-autobiographic movie.
Many thought it was a joke like emcee Toni Blackman.
On Facebook, Blackman said, “I saw this early. I thought it was satire. It’s for real. Dr. Ben Carson used a gospel choir singing Eminem for his campaign announcement. I’m here hollerin’ and planning to call Dave Chappelle tomorrow. We need him. Jon Stewart might come back for a few cameos just for this foolishness. Both hands are on my face right now.”
