Jay Z will be helping Hillary Clinton rally minority voters in Ohio for a “Get Out The Vote” show next month.
Set for Nov. 4, just four days before the 2016 election, the rap mogul/philanthropist will be joined by “special guests” to help mobilize Ohioans to vote for Clinton, according to a release. A huge turnout in the African American community for Clinton in the swing state would be a crucial victory in the race against Republican Party rep Donald Trump, BuzzFeed reports.
Jay Z hosted similar events in 2008 and 2012 for President Barack Obama. A day before the 2012 election, Jay and Bruce Springsteen showed their support for the 44th president at a packed rally in Columbus’ Nationwide Arena where Hov remixed a line in his 2004 hit “99 Problems.” “I changed the lyric,” Jigga said, before flipping the B-word to “Mitt” for Obama’s then-opponent, Republican Mitt Romney. “I got 99 problems but Mitt ain’t one.”
Tickets for the GOTV concert for Clinton will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis near the Cuyahoga Country Board of elections at 3030 Euclid Avenue starting Friday, Oct. 28 to Sunday, Oct. 30 and beginning on Monday, Oct. 31 at the Hillary for Ohio campaign offices. Updates on ticket distribution can also be found here. The venue and guests for the show have not yet been announced.
Both Jay Z and his wife, singer Beyoncé, have backed Clinton, attending fundraisers for the Democratic nominee. Clinton has also tapped Jennifer Lopez to help mobilize Latino voters for a show in Miami on Oct. 29.
