    At a recent listening session held for music journalists for his upcoming Watch the Throne release with Kanye West, Jay-Z addressed recent criticisms of President Barack Obama. The rapper and mogul is an ardent supporter of the leader of the free world, but he is also aware of the issues still plaguing the country. Jay-Z said, "He's the president, it's fair."

    He also said, "You gotta fix [the country's current climate.] Can't fix it all in one day. Numbers don't lie, it's fucked up out there. Unemployment is still high." It sure is.

    What do you think of Jay-Z's assessment of the criticism of the Obama administration?
