Conservatives push for rapper Big Boi to appear at CPAC

Rapper Big Boi is a self-professed libertarian who voted for Gary Johnson last November:

#ProFreedom #ProPeople #LibertyAndJusticeForALL

— Big Boi (@BigBoi) January 14, 2013

Some of his tweets suggest that he’s not a fan of reckless spending:

RT @rawdawgbuffalo: #fact fiscal cliff bill gave$222 million tax break for a rum tax rebate for distillers in Puerto Rico and the Virgin …

— Big Boi (@BigBoi) January 7, 2013

That he’s cool with the free market:

RT .@ronstew: New Info: Whole Foods’ Founder And CEO Says That We Need To Redefine Capitalism ow.ly/2ukfCM

— Big Boi (@BigBoi) January 17, 2013

And that he’s in favor of gun rights:

🔫🔫🔫RT @rawdawgbuffalo: @bigboi Got 99 Problems – Owning an Assault Rifle Isn’t Onerawdawgb.blogspot.com/2013/01/got-99…

— Big Boi (@BigBoi) January 9, 2013

RT .@rawdawgbuffalo: 60,000 Expected To Attend Vegas Gun Show lasvegas.cbslocal.com/2013/01/15/600…

— Big Boi (@BigBoi) January 16, 2013

He even retweeted an Ayn Rand quote:

RT .@rawdawgbuffalo: You can ignore reality,but you can’t ignore the consequences of ignoring reality. -Ayn Ran

— Big Boi (@BigBoi) January 15, 2013

Evidently, that’s enough for some conservatives, who are hoping to parlay his possible political sympathies into an appearance at March’s Conservative Political Action Conference:

So let’s bring @bigboi to CPAC to talk about gun rights…#bigboicpac13

— Brittney Morrett (@bmorrett) January 16, 2013

Yes! “@sarosado: You want to start fixing the culture problem, #tcot? Help bring Big Boi and Daddy Yankee to CPAC. #BigBoiCPAC13 “

— Missy J (@littleShields) January 16, 2013

Yeah #BigBoiCPAC13 would definitely help in many ways. Culture is upstream of politics! #tcot

It would be awesome to have @bigboi at CPAC. #BigBoiCPAC13 Conservatives must engage youth and pop culture to win future.

#BigBoiCPAC13 : Because it’s time for conservatives to embrace culture & those in Music we have common ground with!

— Andi Carlson (@TheAndiC) January 17, 2013

Big Boi’s even doing well in CPAC News’ Facebook poll:

Hey @bigboi – looks like people want you at CPAC 😉 facebook.com/CPACNews #BigBoiCPAC13

— Brittney Morrett (@bmorrett) January 17, 2013

Big Boi has yet to comment.
