Jay-z is gearing up to put his mogul-star power behind the country’s next possible President.
The rap icon will reportedly hold a concert in Cleveland, Ohio in order to mobilize young black voters for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Where Clinton has consistently struggled with garnering more, younger black enthusiasm, Jay-z is hoping to throw a concert to gather these potential voters that would give the Clinton campaign a much needed boost against opponent Trump, in this swing state.
Although there has not been a date set for the upcoming concert, according to a Buzzfeed News article, it has been rumored that Cleveland Cavs champ LeBron James will likely make an appearance as well.
Both James and Jay-z have supported Clinton for this election series, and have also supported current President Obama, so this benefit concert could definitely do some last minute voter boosting.

Jay could also be the only rapper in the game to make a change for the Clinton campaign because he is of course married to Queen Beyoncé! The music couple was seen back in September, chopping it up with Bill Clinton in Philadelphia at the Made in America music festival.
So, with this possible Ohio concert going down before the election, we are wondering which artists Jay-z will have on the line-up. We’re praying Bey shows up!
