Jay-Z says some criticism of President Obama is "fair."
During a private “Watch the Throne” listening session, a small group of journalists asked Jay-Z to share his two-cents on the criticism of President Obama, Billboard.com reports.
Just hours before their session, a report had been released saying the country’s unemployment rate peaked to 9.2 percent in June. Jay-Z responded accordingly: “He the president, it’s fair,” the rapper said of President Obama’s criticism. “You gotta fix [the country’s current climate],” he continued. “Can’t fix it all in one day. Numbers don’t lie, it’s f*cked up out there. Unemployment is still high.”
A longtime supporter of President Obama, it’s no surprise Jigga has his own opinion (and sometimes even jokes) about the President — but what do you think? Do you agree with the rapper’s comment on President Obama’s criticism and the country’s climate?
