    XXL reports that urban culture mogul and husband of Beyonce known as Jay-Z is reportedly being targeted by United States President Barack Obama to play a role in Barry O's 2012 re-election campaign. That's how hip-hop can help change a nation, for sure. I wonder if Kanye West will seek a some sort of "post" in the Obama campaign. I can see it now...

    "I can't believe you've finally heard the chatter about [Jay] replacing Larry Summers," Deputy White House Press Secretary William Burton joked with the New York Post about the possibility of Sean Carter AKA Jay-Z being involved in the campaign. "In all seriousness, keep in mind he was pretty active during the 2008 election, so I don't think it'd surprise anyone that [Jay] would be involved again. But it's a little premature."

    Do you think Jay-Z can aid in influencing the youth vote again by supporting Obama?
