Hip-hop megastar Jay-Z plans to give two free concerts this weekend to support Senator Barack Obama and boost the youth vote for this year’s election. The shows will be held on October 4, in Detroit, and October 5, in Miami. Fans will be able to obtain their free ticket by going to Obama’s local campaign offices.
Jay-Z has vocalized his support for the Democratic presidential nominee and Obama has shared his enthusiasm for the rapper as well. Obama once stated that he listens to the MC’s music and even gestured brushing the “dirt off his shoulders” while campaigning in North Carolina.
