Jay-Z at Obama's Ohio Rally: 'I Got 99 Problems, But Mitt Ain't One'
Rapper joins the President for his final day on the campaign trail

Jay-Z joined Barack Obama this afternoon in Columbus, Ohio as the president closes out the end of the campaign season. Bruce Springsteen also appeared, after stumping for Obama earlier today at a rally in Wisconsin

"What's up?! Ohio make some noise!" the rapper greeted the crowd, before kicking things off with "Public Service Announcement." "Are we ready to move forward, Ohio?" asked Jay-Z between verses. He then jumped into a remix of "99 Problems," substituting Mitt in the chorus to proclaim the GOP candidate as not a problem and rapping over AC/DC's "Back In Black" for a verse. Jay-Z kept the momentum going with a swerving rendition of "On To The Next One," getting the crowd hyped before ripping into an aggressive take on "Run This Town." The rapper took a short break to catch his breath before calling for an "Encore," and introduced Barack Obama. "Four years ago we voted for hope and change," Jay-Z said. "That change is also on the way, we know it's not an overnight thing, but we absolutely want to move forward."
