According to multiple sources, President Obama is seeking the help of Jay-Z for his re-election in 2012. Sources say that Jigga would be enlisted to help the President in a future campaign.
During his 2008 Presidential campaign, Barack Obama relied heavily on mobilizing youth and connecting with the younger generations through speeches, ads and an online presence. Now, with an eye on his 2012 Presidential reelection campaign, there's been talk that Obama's camp may enlist the help of Jay-Z. "I can't believe you've finally heard the chatter about [Jay] replacing Larry Summers," Deputy White House Press Secretary William Burton joked with the New York Post. "In all seriousness, keep in mind he was pretty active during the 2008 election, so I don't think it'd surprise anyone that [Jay] would be involved again. But it's a little premature." (XXL Mag)
