Jay-Z Stumps for Obama in New Campaign Clip
President embodies the 'hope of all the people across the country'

In a new video for the Obama campaign, Jay-Z gets introspective on what the president means to him and encourages voters to support the incumbent. "[Obama] represents the hope of all the people across the country, who will look and see themselves and know the possibilities," the rapper says. "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."

Jay-Z continues, "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."
