Mighty Hannibal Barack's the vote

Georgia's own Mighty Hannibal previewed his new song in support of Barack Obama's presidential nomination at the Ponderosa Stomp in New Orleans earlier this month. He borrows the hook from the Winans' song "It's Time" (produced by Teddy Riley) and throws in his own ad-libs.

Favorite line: "I ain't gonna study war no mo', so John McCain got to go."

Best known for his classic anti-Vietman song "Hymn No. 5," Hannibal wrote it in 1966, long before anti-war sentiment had reached its peak:

And here's footage from his performance at The Earl last year, backed by the Black Lips, who actually cleaned up for the show:
