In a new ad for the president’s reelection campaign, Jay-Z says President Obama brought hope to the country in 2008 and motivated people to vote for the first time. "For so long, there was this voice that was silenced out there as far as exercising your right to vote," Jay-Z says.
The commercial is mostly a shot of Jay-Z in jacket and tie, talking about the president and voting rights. But interspersed in the video are shots of last month's "Made in America" concerts where Jay-Z wore his Brooklyn Nets cap. The last scene, in fact, is a shot of Jay-Z full face (and Nets cap) looking at the camera.
Jay-Z hosted a campaign fund-raiser for Obama last month at his 40-40 Club in Manhattan.
