mojo-photo-eminem2.jpgBob Barr! Just kidding, it’s Obama. Okay, for you youngsters out there, Eminem is the name of a rapper who had some very famous songs back in, uh, a 3-year period between 1999 and 2002. Since then, he’s been like the Axl Rose of hip-hop, lost in the wilderness, emerging from hibernation only to toss out an album featuring a political protest song, “Mosh,” that was compelling if a little too angry, and did nothing to help out that Kerry guy back in 2004. Watch it after the jump. Apparently he’s working on a new album, to be called Relapse, produced by Dr. Dre and set for an early 2009 release, but I’ll believe it when I see it.

Em was over in the U.K. chatting with BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe when he mentioned he’s voting for Obama; he admitted that he “can’t get too political because I don’t know enough,” but offered that “Barack would be a breath of fresh air, to get in there and actually get what’s left of the Bush administration out the door.” Seriously, did anybody think he’d be all about Sarah Palin?
