Jay-Z made Mitt Romney his bitch in a thundering performance at a rally for President Obama today (Nov. 5) in the crucial swing state of Ohio. The rapper substituted the GOP candidate’s name in his explicit “99 Problems,” which should give “Fox News” plenty to talk about.
The rally which also included rocker Bruce Springsteen drew more than 15,000 ecstatic fans who were treated to a concert as well as President Obama’s remarks on his final campaign swing before the election.
“They told me no colorful language. So I brought two songs. I have to do it, I’m sorry,” Jay-Z shouted from the stage. Rappers are usually reticent about changing explicit language, but Jay-Z made an exception.
I changed the lyric of the song. It goes like this – so let’s do it real fast before they come up here,” he told the crowd. With that, he launched into his song, “99 problems but Mitt ain’t one. If you’re having girl problems I feel bad for you son.”
“I got 99 problems but Mitt ain’t one…” he echoed in the chorus. Mitt was substituted for the uncensored lyric: “99 Problems but a bitch ain’t one. If you havin’ girl problems I feel bad for you son.”
“Not only are they all on my iPod – and yes, the president has an iPod – but it’s also because both of them tell an American story,” Obama said of the musicians.
“I told Jay-Z the other day our lives are parallel a little bit… both of us now have daughters… and both of us have wives who are more popular than we are.” Jay-Z is married to Beyonce Knowles who gave birth to daughter Blue Ivy Carter in January.
Obama has tapped a large contingent of celebrities to campaign for him, covering just about every voting demographic, from Lady Gaga and John Legend to ’60s-era rockers Crosby, Stills and Nash and Stevie Wonder.
