Rush Limbaugh Read Aloud Some Jay-Z Lyrics. Area Producer Ocelot Gives Him a Beat.

By now, you've surely seen or heard about this video, which features Jay-Z performing yesterday at a Columbus, Ohio, rally in support of President Barack Obama's re-election bid.

Watch it if you want, but know this: Its newsworthiness centers around the fact that, while performing his song “99 Problems,” Jay-Z replaced the word “bitch” in his “I got 99 problems / but a bitch ain't one” lyric with Mitt Romney's first name. And, in news that surprises no one, conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh took to the airwaves this morning to blast Jay-Z for this stunt, reading off Jay-Z's lyrics from the rally in the process.

Here, however, is where things get funny: Moments ago, area graphic designer Cory Kilduff, who's something of an accomplished musician too thanks to his work as an electronic musician/producer under the Ocelot moniker, took an audio rip of Limbaugh's reading, dropped Rick Rubin's beat for the Jay-Z song behind Limbaugh's vocals and uploaded the whole thing to YouTube.

It really is a must-listen, too — if not just for absurdity's sake, then due to the fact that, in this context, Limbaugh's got something of an interesting flow going on. Seriously, he's not that bad. And, Kilduff swears, he didn't edit Limbaugh's timing or anything in his production. Listen for yourself below.
