We have the year marker until Election Day for the 2016 presidential race in the United States and it can't come sooner. After months of fundraising, candidates are starting to roll out ads targeted at their opponents and specific key early battleground states like Iowa and New Hampshire that are important in the early primaries. Ben Carson, a leader in republican primary against rivals like Donald Trump, Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush and others just unveiled a new rap ad that is clearly aimed at black voters.

Regardless of your politics in this situation, the new ad is almost comical. Obtained by ABC News, it starts with a deep voiced man telling listeners to "vote" and then hits you with "Ben Carson 2016, vote and support Ben Carson for president it'd be awesome" over a thudding bass line and a simple synth melody.

Now that the presidential race has just achieved a new level of litness, who is going to be the first one to drop a full mixtape? This goes harder than the grains leftover in the pyramids. He is spending $150,000 to roll this out in eight different states starting this Friday.

As one might expect, Twitter has had a field day with Mr. Carson and his rap. We compiled some of the best reactions and put them below.

It isn't a rap song unless it is on Genius.


He still needs to work too.
