Political Candidate Catching Heat For Video Using Sexual Rap Lyric


(AllHipHop News) Maine Democratic gubernatorial candidate Michael Michaud found himself in hot water last week when a video profile of him was uploaded to the internet.

The problem was the blogger who produced the video included a rap song that contained a sexual lyric aimed at a top Republican in the state.

Knack Factory production company’s Alex Steed added the song “King of Maine” by homestate rapper Spose to the video. During one section of the track Spose rap’s, “I’ve got Susan Collins giving everyone brain.”

Steed obviously knew Collins is a GOP senator from Maine, but he did not know “giving brain” meant oral sex. Of course, Republicans jumped on the clip and demanded the Michaud campaign denounce and take down the video. The campaign complied, but insisted they did not have a hand in the production of the video.

“The Michaud campaign did not produce this video or have any control or advance knowledge of its contents,” said spokesperson Lizzy Reinholt. “We do not condone the offensive song lyrics included in it.”

Reinholt’s account was backed up by Steed who claims the video was made independently and without any financial backing from the Michaud campaign.
