Jay-Z canceled his Miami-scheduled concert in support of Barack Obama's campaign due to throat problem.
Jay-Z's fans from Miami were sent home disappointed when the rapper didn't appear at the city's Bayfront Park Amphitheatre for his second free Barack Obama show. "The whole concert has had to be canceled because it was Jay-Z who pulled out. We haven't been told why, but I'm sure all the fans want an explanation," an unnamed insider spoke of the cancellation.
The rapper was reportedly forced to cancel the show because he encountered strains in his lungs from performing the previous two evenings at Miami's Bayfront Park and in Detroit, Michigan. A spokesperson from Obama also explained that the "event that was supposed to take place did not happen," because Jay-Z said he "was sick".
Jay-Z was supposed to take the Miami's stage on October 6 along side Wyclef Jean and Rick Ross. No statement yet from Jay-Z's camp concerning plan to re-schedule the scrapped concert.
