Will Obama’s love of hip-hop help or hurt him?
Back on January 3, when presidential hopeful Barack Obama walked triumphantly into his victory party after the Iowa caucus, the entrance music playing was Jay-Z‘s raucous “99 Problems”.
The New York Post reports that “some listeners took it as a not-so-sly reference to Hillary.”
“We didn’t know he used that,” a shocked Clinton spokesperson said.
Obama has cited acts like Jay, Beyoncé and Eminem as just a few of his favorites – even though Em, he says, “curses sometimes”.
Do you think Obama’s acknowledgement of hip-hop will help or hurt his campaign?
