Presidential Rap: Ugandan Prez Puts on Hip-Hop Hat

Presidential Rap: Ugandan Prez Puts on Hip-Hop Hat

Published November 10, 2010

KAMPALA, Uganda – He's 65, has been president for more than two decades, and now, he's Uganda's newest rap star.

President Yoweri Museveni has released a rap song and video that's become a sensation in Uganda.

"You want another rap?" — the song's chorus and name — has supporters dancing wildly.

Museveni has been president since 1986. Uganda holds elections again in February.

The new hit isn't exactly gangsta, though. It's more poor-African-farmer than Straight Outta Compton. The rap's lyrics have Museveni turning millet into a hen, into an egg, eventually into a cow and then a wife.

Political analysts expect Museveni's new rapping skills to win him more votes, especially among the young.
