Song representatives for US presidential candidate Barack Obama have lambasted rapper Ludacris over his lyrical attack on the senator's political opponents in a recent mixtape.
Ludacris - real name Christopher Bridges - recorded a track in support of Obama's running for the White House, while slamming the popular politician's adversaries in his song Politics As Usual.
The tune hits out at Hillary Clinton, John McCain and Jesse Jackson.
Obama's representatives branded Ludacris' lyrics as "outrageously offensive", saying he should be seriously ashamed of himself. - Wenn
