An anti-Joe Biden chant that turned into a meme among Republicans has now stemmed one of the hottest songs in the country. “Let’s Go Brandon” appears to have innocent intentions, but the phrase has turned ubiquitous in the conservative circle for their disdain of the president. Rapper Loza Alexander capitalized on the popular saying, and his recent song is taking over the iTunes charts. The chant started following a NASCAR race earlier this month, when the crowd at Alabama’s Talladega Superspeedway was chanting “F--- Joe Biden” as NBC Sports reporter Kelli Stavast interviewed race winner Brandon Brown. The reporter misheard the chants as “Let’s Go Brandon,” and she told Brown what she was hearing.

Pretty catchy hook/sample. Hope this man gets the biggest bag when this goes platinum. It actually was #1 on on itunes overall until Adele's new album dropped lol Still the number #1 hip hop song on itunes is pretty impressive.

Lets go Brandon seems to be very popular here in the states!

Interesting, would have been easier to poke at country music tropes but progressives hating on hip hop will be entertaining to see.

With that said, I don't find it catchy nor entertaining to listen too. I couldn't get through 60 seconds. Smart on him for capitalizing on the hilarious movement though.

I'm not too familiar on current rap or hip hop trends/styles, but it sounded more like a pop song with all that auto-tune/electronic addage. lol

Not only do republicans suck at running a country, they suck at rap too. You guys need to apologize to 2Pac.

Ah, well then it's not surprising to see it trend then especially on a viral (and hilarious) meme. Good on the small time guy making it big though.

@Stevo_the_gamer: that's what I'm saying, it's an anomaly for anyone of any genre whos independent and largely unknown to reach a number 1 spot, I mean only Adele is above him currently over all genres...

Obviously riding the let's go Brandon put him there for it to be so popular, a song with a political leaning. Which is interesting.

This thread is vapid overall but I gotta say Tupac and Biggie were both geniuses but the scope of topics Pac wrote about was a lot bigger. BIG ghostwrote a lot for bad boy so you can see his range of talent, but it was all geared to mainstream hit making. He was good at that but there's more shallowness to the subject matter. That's ok, it worked for them and they were building a brand. But Pac's work feels more inspired and diverse and deep because of it and I appreciate that. I like both a lot tho. Wu-Tang are amazing too.

I wasn't even aware of the meme but apparently "**** Joe Biden" is a very popular chant at many different sporting events. During a racing event some fake NBC reporter heard it and tried gaslighting on air by claiming they were chanting "let's go Brandon." Media really goes out of their way to cover for him and try to deceive the world into believing what people are clearly chanting isn't anti Joe Biden in nature.

I think it's lame they were chanting it at all. WTF has happened to this country? Everything is politicized, even NASCAR ffs.

Just...turn it off, people. Enjoy your weekend of watching cars turn left for a few hours. Does Biden really bug you that much? There's more to life than "owning the libs".

Don't be a hypocrite. I've seen you and many more in here get off on what they believe to be "owning the other side." And I don't have a side. I'm pointing out reality. His approval rating is in the shitter, he's openly mocked at several sporting events, not just NASCAR, he's done nothing positive. He's an embarrassment and the only reason you'll refuse to agree is you think I'm trying to "own the libs" so you go into defense mode.

I wonder what's the Venn diagram for people who chanted and people who cried stop politicizing sports. The "woke right" trying to proselytize at a sporting event just as they previously derided?

@eoten:His approval rating is in the shitter

Made the right happy for 4 years, so no problem right?

@comp_atkins: I think politics is fine in sports. Even laudable. Sporting events present a large stage, and it's going to attract activism. This incident is just a reminder that the "keep politics out of sports" people disagree with the cause, not the stage or method.

Politics have been a part of sports for a long time. For example, what exactly do you think the purpose of The Star Springled Star played during sporting events is?

It is propaganda that has been there since WW2. With the intent of spurring up nationalist thought.

https://www.vox.com/2016/9/3/12774172/colin-kaepernick-national-anthem-why

As others said, Politics in sports is fine. It is a free country, and if people are getting offended, then good. If people are getting offended over hearing different, opposing viewpoints, then they have probably been way too sheltered, and needs to be sent straight back into reality.
