As we reported yesterday, Jay-Z planned to do a second free Obama concert last night but he ended up cancelling the show because he had throat problems. Organizers first tried to stall, saying Jay-Z was just late, but they eventually had to announce Jigga wasn't coming. Yesterday was the last day for eligible voters to register so organizers feel like it was a huge opportunity missed, although they should be greatful for the free show Jay-Z did the day before. Also scheduled to perform at the free show were Wyclef Jean and Rick Ross but the entire event ended up being cancelled after backlash from fans after Jay-Z pulled out.
In related news, Jay-Z recently put out a new song called "Lick A Shot For Obama" [listen here] The song is actualy an interlude from Green Lantern's upcoming "Yes We Can" mixtape, so make sure you check it out now!
