Republican presidential hopeful and heavy-eyelid possessor Ben Carson isn’t going to rely on his race alone to woo black voters. Nope. Tomorrow, his campaign plans to begin airing a new radio spot rap anthem targeted at “younger black voters,” who reportedly like the hip hop. The song features choice Carson soundbites, including inspirational messages (“I’m very hopeful that I’m not the only one willing to pick up the baton of freedom”) and dog whistles about “personal responsibility” and “hard work.”

It seems as if Carson forgot to add some of Slate’s favorite soundbites, so we went ahead and fixed it for him. Here ya go, Ben! We even made a little music video for you.
