"My Name's Obama" - "Call Me Maybe" Parody by Rucka Rucka Ali

There's really not much information out there about Detroit pop/hiphop parody rapper/singer Rucka Rucka Ali, who has somehow found fame and popularity on YouTube with his racy, often seemingly racist versions of popular songs.
Urban Dictionary says of Rucka:

Free Speech taken to its literal extreme. His songs, most of which are parodies on pop and hip-hop music, can very easily be labeled as simply racist. However, if given a chance, the listener learns that his songs are deeply critical of world events, governments, and prejudices. Also, they're goddam hilarious.

A short list of things Ali has parodied include: white people, black people, Asians, Mexicans, Russians, Canadians, the French, Germans, Haitians, Jews, Christians, Muslims, celebrities, the 80's, emos, Crips, Bloods, senior citizens, homeless people, rich people, gays, gay-haters, rednecks, hippies, police, Obama, Obama haters, Obama supporters, crack-smokers, and Youtube.

Has recently had trouble with Youtube blocking his accounts and deleting his videos, but his fans re-upload the videos just as fast as they get taken off.

This is his latest on Obama, sung to the tune of the very popular Carly Rae Jepson song "Call Me Maybe".

If you are easily offended, do not watch. Some of the lyrics are pretty dang funny, but some of the video is quite offensive. You have been warned.  If you do watch, remember this is a parody, Rucka lampoons everyone, and view in light of Urban Dictionary's description above.
