With the presidential campaign winding down, both candidates have some of the biggest names in music out on the trail encouraging voters to rally behind their particular candidate. Add Jay-Z to the list of musicians who will be helping the Obama campaign on its final day.
The rapper will perform and introduce the president at a rally in Columbus, Ohio, on Monday, which just so happens to be the final day of the campaign. Hova has already thrown a huge fundraiser for Obama in New York City, so this news shouldn’t be too surprising, though the timing shows the importance of Jay-Z’s role in helping to get young people to vote.
The star-studded event will also include a short set by noted Obama supporter Bruce Springsteen.
