Video: Jay-Z Alters Lyrics of '99 Problems' at Obama Rally


The esteemed rapper lent his talent and support for President Barack Obama's Ohio rally a day before the presidential election.

Rapper Jay-Z gave more boost to President Obama's campaign when he appeared in Columbus, Ohio, on Monday, November 5. The hip hop giant and staunch supporter of the President made his allegiances clear as he slammed presidential contender, Mitt Romney, during the all-important rally a day before Election Day.

Jigga gave a very upfront performance of his hit track "99 Problems" at the Columbus Nationwide Arena, where he replaced curse words with Republican candidate Mitt Romney's name. "I have to do it - I'm sorry," he told the crowd. "I didn't get clearance from the Secret Service. I changed the lyrics of this song. It goes like this, 'If you havin' world problems, I feel bad for you son. I got 99 problems, but Mitt ain't one'," Jay-Z rapped as the democrat crowd laughed.

After the timely adjustments made to the song, the hip hop mogul continued to perform his other hits, including "Run This Town" and "Public Service Announcement", to the 15, 000 plus crowd of supporters.

"Four years ago we voted for hope and change. Already, that hope made a generation of people feel like they can be anything in the world," Jigga told the crowd. "Change is also on the way. We know it's not an overnight thing, but we absolutely want to go forward. We don't want to go back," he added.

The Boss a.k.a. Bruce Springsteen, who apparently spent a whole day with the President on board Air Force One, also attended the Ohio rally which marked the final day of campaigning.
