Libyan leader Muammar Gadhafi vowed Tuesday that “we will not surrender,” is both the name of his new hip-hop single, that he plans to release later his week, and his response to the continued NATO airstrikes bombing the shit out of his compound in Tripoli.
Teaming up with various artists like Akon, lil Wayne, and Snoop, this track has the potential to debut at #1 on the Billboard charts.
With obvious doubts about his leadership and rapping ability, he decided to drop some lyrics, or as he says, “spit that hot fire” during a live broadcast on state TV:
“I am now speaking as planes and bombs fall around me,” Gadhafi spit. “But my soul is in God’s hand. We will not think about death or life. We will think about the call of duty.” (Kanye would be jealous.)
“His lyrics have an interesting symbolism as both a call to action and popular video game… we cannot overlook the dichotomy of his words and the speed at which he said them. He could give Busta Rhymes a run for his money,” said secretary of state Hilary Clinton, in response to the broadcast.
After the NATO attacks subside, Gaddafi plans to get back into the studio, record several more tracks and approach some big names in the music industry to go on tour this summer. He wants to bring his music to the people, as they have always been the focus of everything he does.
