Live: "My President is Black" by Jay-Z (Live in D.C.)
In town for the Presidential Inauguration, Mr. Carter alongside Young Jeezy campaigned for the new President live from D.C.'s Love nightclub last night.
MY PRESIDENT IS BLACK
"My President is Black my Maybach too
And I'll be Goddamn if my diamonds ain't ain't blue
My money is dark green and my Porsche is light grey
And I'm headed for D.C. anybody feel me
My President is Black in fact he's half white
So even in a racist mind he's half right
Even in these racist times we alright
My President is Black but his house is all white
Rosa Parks sat so Martin Luther can walk
Martin Luther walked so Barack Obama can run
Barack Obama ran so all the children can fly
So I'm a spread my wings you can meet me in the sky
I already got my own clothes already got my own shoes
I was hot before Barack imagine what I'm gonna do
Hello Miss America, hey pretty lady
Red white & blue flag wave me for me baby
Never thought I'd say this shit, baby I'm good
You can keep your puss I don't want no more Bush
No more wars no more Iraq
No more white lies my President is Black." - Jay-Z

After months of officially and unofficially stumping on the campaign trail, Jay-Z's endorsement of President-elect Barack Obama could be rewarded with a performance spot during January's inauguration. Numerous sources, including the New York Daily News and UK tabloid The Sun, report that Obama is in talks with the multi-platinum emcee to grace the stage on January 20, 2009.
The Sun was the first to break the news, when it cited an unnamed source close to British Pop singer Leona Lewis. Initial reports stated Lewis, Jay-Z, Beyonce Knowles and other A-list artists were approached for the event. For her part, Beyonce has told reporters she would be thrilled with the possibility.
"I'm there. I can't wait," Knowles said. "I feel like all of us, we're ready to do whatever we have to do. Whatever they want. If they need me to volunteer, they need me to sing, I'm there, and I'm ready."
During a heated election campaign, artists such as will.i.am, Bun B and Ludacris offered their unconditional support of Obama and got mixed reactions. If true, the performance would be a first in Hip Hop. The closest thing the inaugural stage has seen to a Hip Hop performance was the inclusion of Stevie Wonder and poet Maya Angelou at Bill Clinton's inauguration in 1997.
