Rapper Jay-Z is featured in a new ad produced by the Obama campaign. In the video, the rapper talks about President Obama‘s influence and why it’s important to vote.
“For so long, there was this voice that was silenced out there as far as exercising your right to vote,” Jay-Z says. “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. ”
Last month, Jay-Z and wife Beyoncé hosted a fundraiser for Obama in New York City that raised $4 million for his campaign.
