Jay-Z To Campaign For President Obama? + Eminem Is The #1 Hottest MC?

 

President Obama's camp is already beginning to plan for the 2012 election. Find out why they think Jay-Z would be a great asset to his campaign, plus MTV's complete list of the hottest MC's when you read on...

 

President Obama's campaign team wants to get the youth and minority vote.  And they may have found a solution - get help from Jay-Z. The White House Press Secretary said, "In all seriousness, keep in mind he was pretty active during the 2008 election, so I don't think it'd surprise anyone that he would be involved again."

The president's team also feels that Jay-Z is a responsible celebrity who also has the same message as President Obama. Forbes asked the Jay-Z what he wants to people to think 50 years from now when people say his name and spoke, "I hope to inspire . . . I guess Obama took this thing already, but just the hope of how far we can make it and the hope in knowing how far you can go from where you started if you really apply yourself and stay true to who you are."

 

Do you think Jay-Z can motivate the youth to get out and vote in the next presidential election?

 

 

MTV recently compiled a list of the hottest MC's of 2010. The list has sparked much controversy over some of the spots. Each artist was ranked by their combination of rhyme skill, flow, buzz, commercial success, web presence, and cultural influence. Here's the complete list:

10. Ludacris

9.B.O.B

8. Waka Flocka Flame

7. Lil Wayne

6. Nicki Minaj

5. Rick Ross

4. Drake

3. Kanye West

2. Jay-Z

1. Eminem

 

I got some personal issues with Kanye only being at #3.  But that's just me. Your thoughts on MTV's list?

remove 8-4 and you got yourself a list. They are all horrible. HORRIBLE!!! NONE of them need to be listed unless the list says the worst rappers of 2010. Lil Wayne was in jail most of the year. Another reason he shouldn't be on there.

Most Blacks wanted Obama to

Most Blacks wanted Obama to win, which he did, and want him to get reelected, which he can. But, why vote for someone when you don't mirror the progressive nature? I'm not saying that this is all Black people, don't twist my words. But when I still see sooooo many young people not doing anything constructive with their life, they shouldn't even be allowed to mention anything in relationship to Obama if they have no determination not to be a loser. And I get it, so kids really don't have a chance from jump, but there are soooooo many that do have opportunities that waste it. I know our issues are not going to be solved overnight, but if we can jump on Obama's wagon overnight, then our issues can start to be addressed with the same urgency and effort we used to help get him elected.

WORST LIST EVER's picture

The list makes sense, it

The list makes sense, it wasn't composed based on talent, but rather on impact and these artists had a lot of impact this year. And just so we are clear, BOB is a good rapper.

With that considered, I think its good, but B.o.B. shouldve been higher..dude got serious radio n video rotation...Kanye was absent most of the year until like June...so I think he's placed just fine...n i wouldnt of personally placed Nicki over Wayne *side eye* hope dis bish album dont flop lol

Okay, HEAR ME AND HEAR ME

Okay, HEAR ME AND HEAR ME GOOD! I like Eminem just as much as the next person. Lyrically, he's great. But everyone keeps forgetting that you have to BUY an Eminem CD to discover that he's a great rapper & lyricist. All his singles are poppish, catchy garbage until recently, when he debuted his singles from The Recovery. Hands down, Jay-Z & Kanye West should fight from the first spot. B.O.B should NOT be on the list either... this is sad. MTV, once a beacon of music, now has the credibility of writings on a bathroom wall. Though I agree that Eminem has earned one of the top 3 spots of THIS YEAR, he should not be at the top of anyone's list for the decade OR of all time. So many rappers have been WAY more consistent than that...

WTFlocka is Waka's retarded ass doing on the list? These top MC lists are always a joke, so why am I surprised. Where is Wale??

I agree with the top 3...but maybe not in that specific order. But why is Drake and even Rick Ross that high? And before even Nicki lmaoo. And Luda at 10?? blasphemy--can't take this mess seriously!

The top three spots are

The top three spots are perfect. Em is amazing. Look pass the color and look at his talent. Nobody in the game goes harder than him. Jay and Ye respectfully have the second and third spots. After that.... wouldn't be my line up but that's just my opinion.

Jay was extremely

Jay was extremely instrumental in getting the youth vote. Dems cannot lose this election - next month definitely. You're complaining now ABOUT SLOW CHANGE (WHICH YOU CANNOT UNDO ALL DAMAGE OVERNIGHT), imagine if it goes back to how it was. President Obama is doing his best to make the playing field financially even and Republicans are scared to death to see a minority living, eating, working and making the same money they are. WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!!

Didn't Obama win??? What's

Didn't Obama win??? What's with this Jay-z to save the day nonsense. How about the President just accomplish one big thing and win support. I for one will vote Republican before I support anything pompous Jay-z is behind...Jay-z, WTF kind of role model for the country is that, don't he still talk vulgar, and smoke and get drunk in public with his young manipulated bride. And doesn't he talk salty about his peers, he's not even a good role model for musicians working together, trying to end T-pains autotune money. How you inspire hope while dissing others dreams in rap lyrics, and bragging about your own perceived greatness, does Obama share that mentality? Yeah, I think I'll vote Republican, at least when Bush was in office Financial aid was good, now it's all F-ed up with damn near no Banks in participation.

When speaking of lyrical

When speaking of lyrical talent, Eminem is a beast on the mic. He dosent get enuff cred, but ole boy can def hold down the mic. Listen closely too him spit. This "rap" bullshit today is too comical. These young whipper snappers could learn a few thangs!

Thank you! Instead of people

Thank you! Instead of people throwing shade at Obama and/or Jay for this decision, they need to look at and be ashamed at the fact that Jay--or any other pop culture celeb--is even NEEDED to get people's attention in regards to politics. We need to get our priorities straight, folks. SMH

how in the fuck did Drake

how in the fuck did Drake make the list? Come on now i promise it was all hype. Just like Nikki Minaj, she would slay her verse on someone else shit but the first song i heard of hers was wack. I feel the same way about Drake all that fuckin hype bought this nigga cd and it was a bunch of garbage, imo. Don't get me wrong I love him on other peoples shit but his cd is trash. I'm waitin on Nikki's cd to drop she got a couple of singles out the slow songs that I can bob my head to, I just hopes she delivers like she does on other people shit. Yall gotta be bullshitin me right Waka Floka Flame? GTFOH
