Jay Z hasn't been shy about getting political, and has addressed the war on drugs and police brutality. The mogul with "Obama on the text" now plans to help out the president's possible successor, Hillary Clinton, with a concert in Ohio.
According to BuzzFeed News, Jay Z will hold a concert in Cleveland, Ohio aimed at mobilizing young black voters for Hillary Clinton. While the exact date isn't set yet, there are rumors that Cleveland Cavs superstar LeBron James, who endorsed Clinton earlier this month, could make an appearance.
In 2012, according to Cleveland.com, Jay Z campaigned for Obama alongside Bruce Springsteen in Columbus, Ohio. During his performance of "99 Problems," Hova changed the lyrics to "I got 99 problems but Mitt ain't one."
Barack Obama won Ohio in 2008 and 2012, largely thanks to high turnout among young voters of color. While BuzzFeed News reports that the Clinton campaign "has struggled to excite young black voters," polls have found that Trump could get zero percent of the black vote in Ohio, so Clinton should be in good shape if African American voters listen to Jay Z and show up to vote.
