The Clinton campaign has proudly announced that multi-millionaire music mogul and rapper Jay Z is staging a concert in support of the Democratic presidential candidate in Cleveland before Election Day.
The show is set for Nov. 4 and will focus on mobilizing black voters in the crucial swing state.
Hillary can’t bring herself to comment on Jay Z’s nasty lyrics.
Mainstream media has gone nuts over crude remarks made by Donald Trump in the past. But no one seems to have a problem with the crude and demeaning lyrics and antics generated by Jay Z, his wife Beyoncé, and other pop culture stars who support Hillary Clinton — including Katy Perry, who has been running around wearing a Nasty Woman T-shirt on the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, campus, and Miley Cyrus, who wore a giant bikini bow top as she knocked on student doors at George Mason University over the weekend.
Take a look at just two of Jay Z's songs.
One is titled "P****."
The power of the P****,
Thatz why every mutherf**** in the world dress fly.
that can afford it they cop the best ride, for the power of the P****.
(Let's have some fun)
The power of the P****, thatz why n***** get they hair cut, try to dress fly.
Every baller that can afford it he cop the best ride.
For the Power of the P****.
Another is titled "B****** and Sisters."
Sisters get respect, b****** get what they deserve
Actually — we'll stop there.
Hillary can't bring herself to comment on Jay Z's gratuitous use of "b****" in so many of his songs, notes HotAir.com. Not as long as he and his money are "With Her."
Jay Z, who is also friends with the Obamas, put on a similar concert in 2012 for the incumbent president. The Obamas have invited Jay Z and Beyoncé to the White House on numerous occasions. Beyoncé and her daughter, Blue Ivy, have visited with Michelle Obama and her daughters, Sasha and Malia, at Camp David.
Beyoncé, of course, has been vocal in the Black Lives Matter movement, using her Super Bowl halftime show as a platform for getting out her political message of her unhappiness with the country.
Jay Z addressed police brutality in his song, "Spiritual," which he released after the deaths of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling in July. He said at the time in a statement, "I'm saddened and disappointed in THIS America — we should be further along. WE ARE NOT."
Maybe he should have been talking to the Obamas — and the Clintons — about that. Jay Z and Beyoncé most recently were seen hanging out with former President Bill Clinton during the Made in America festival in Philadelphia in September.
Jay Z's Cleveland concert may also feature an appearance by LeBron James, who recently announced his support for Hillary, reports Buzzfeed.
"Only one person running truly understands the struggles of an Akron child born into poverty," James wrote in a New York Times op-ed. "And when I think about the kinds of policies and ideas the kids in my foundation need from our government, the choice is clear. That candidate is Hillary Clinton."
Other Clinton concerts are planned by Jennifer Lopez in Miami and the National in Cincinnati.
