Obama Presidential Campaign Releases Rapper Jay-Z, An Image of American Dream? [VIDEO]
We realize politicians running for office will do just about anything to get a vote but this is really obvious now. We all know that The Obama’s are very close to many celebrities and rappers. We are not sure Jay-Z is considered an image of the American dream.
If we look back at all of the violence that derived from the rap, gangsta rap and hip hop eras, we can recall how negative the images of rappers were. Even today, though rap has become very commercial and has crossed over to pop stardom than street rap music, it still shows our young people that the entertainment industry is the way out without education. It’s not the ideal profession most parents want their children to pursue since its so exploited and degrading in so many ways.
Well, our President is determined, like any other politician, to get his votes from every angel and avenue he can. By using a hip hop mogul whose nearly a billionaire, its almost a given for all of Jay-Z’s fans to run to the polls and vote for Obama!
Watch video below on what many African American critics have to say about this. Do you agree with them?
