Jay-Z Obama Video

President Obama is a huge fan of Jay-Z, and vis versa, as the video above shows. The multimillionaire rapper appears in a new campaign ad, which also serves to remind people to register and vote.

For so long, there was this voice that was silenced out there as far as exercising your right to vote. I think it was a voice that was silent because people had lost hope. They didn’t believe that their voice mattered or counted.

Now people are exercising their right, and you are starting to see the power of our vote. He made it mean something for the first time for a lot of people.

Obama appeared in a video message at Jay-Z’s Made in America music festival saying:

To me the idea of America is that no matter what you look like or where you come from, you can make it if you try. Jay-Z did. He didn’t come from power or privilege. He got ahead because he worked hard, learned from his mistakes and just plain refused to quit. That’s the promise of this country, and all of us have the responsibility to keep that promise alive,

then urging the crowd to register and vote, no matter what their party affiliation, adding.

Make your voice heard for future you wan to to see.

Could he have added that the right to vote is fairly meaningless without the rights of Free Speech, Assembly and Due process. Hope Obama has something (anything) to say about those rights in the next performance before the protestors are kettled, pepper sprayed, and arrested.

The multimillionaire rapper …

Yeah, no wonder Jay-Z “likes” Obama, and it mostly ain’t about their common ethnicity or whatever. Money talks…

Rap on about something meaningful, Jay-Z, like tell the truth about how “well” your fans have done under Obama Admin, or is that too too louche for you or something?

Another fabulously wealthy Obama pimpster, just like Oprah.

I wonder why president Obama does not attack JZ for his money, a multimillonaire, and does attack Romney for his money…je,je,je..JZ has about 20 times the money that Romney has.

Jay-Z made his money himself, he did not come from a wealthy background, far from it. But he could be donating more to charity, IMO
