Jay-Z and Diddy called into New Yorks Hot 97 radio station yesterday, just moments after President Barack Obama was inaugurated. "The love, the pure love that was just spread. Everybody's just taking care of everybody. Everybody's ready to go to work to help this man. His speech was so elegant, so strong, so presidential," Diddy explained. Jigga added "We gotta help him. We gotta absolutely have his back. We have to do all we can. We have to do whatever community service to help 'cause this is not an easy job. You don't clap your hands and this thing goes away. He took on a very hard job. The worst job in the world. The best job and the worst job 'cause he has so much to do. And the people really have to understand that."
