When Jay-Z rapped, “I’m not a business man, I’m a business, man!”, I thought there couldn’t be anyone cooler than he. But perhaps Jay-Z’s endorsement of President Barack Obama could denote that Jay is watching Obama’s throne. In the video Jay-Z speaks about what the President has done for America explaining, “When the president got into office initially, what he represented to a nation of kids was hope”. Jay continued, “You know, the hope of people all across the country, who would look and see themselves, and the possibilities.”
In the video, Obama gives Jay some love too 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.”
We might not have a say in the vote in the States but watch the video below anyways and be prepared to feel inspired.Tweet
