Posted By Urban News Hour | October 15, 2012

President Barrack Obama just released another re-election campaign ad, a video ad brought to you by hip-hop mogul Jay-Z. In the new video Jay Z voices his thoughts on what the president means to him and encourages voters to support President Obama Re-Election in holding his position in office.

The president appears in the video, he praises Jay-Z as someone who “didn’t come from power or privilege” but succeeded because he “refused to quit.”

Also, the campaign video ad includes a cross promotion of concert footage during the “Budweiser Made In America” festival, where Jay-Z performed on Sept. 1, featuring President Obama speaking to a crowd of 50,000 gathered in Philadelphia to vote.

Entrepreneur Jay-Z is calling on Obama supporters to exercise their “right to vote” in a campaign ad.

“For so long, there was this voice that was silenced out there as far as exercising your right to vote. I think it was a voice that was silent because people had lost hope. They didn’t believe that their voice mattered or counted.” Says Jay Z.

Jay-Z continues, “Now people are exercising their right, and you are starting to see the power of our vote. He made it mean something for the first time for a lot of people.”

The Obama campaign directs all American viewers of the video to its “gottavote” website, which explain to how to vote early, register to vote and state-by-state guides to what voters need to know on Election Day, regardless the party of choice.
