    Obama 08!!

    All TX residents, please go out and vote today. He and Billary are damn near tied so each vote is going to count!

    Did anyone hear what Rush L told his listeners? He is a republican and he told his listeners to go out and vote for hillary today to throw the democrat game off. He must know that if Obama wins this primary that McCain will lose. How low do people have to sink?

    I was waiting to hear from Jay on this issue..

    It’s BARACK Ya Bastads!! HOV

  • Jahpson

    Jay and Russ support Obama. But are they registered to vote? that is the question!!

    i know there are many low-life stans on here who will get so excited just because their hero supports a candidate that the black media gives the thumbs up to.

    everyone who has an opinion on ANY candidate..i hope your registered to vote and intend on voting in the primaries or the official election come this fall. otherwise stfu!

    I gotta commend you for keeping it real. Although they are supporting the candidate you would kill your mama for you still diss them. A fake a$$ might have been nice to them just this once. Ain’t nothing wrong with being conisistant.

  • crazy black lady

    i have voted in texas but the polls show hillary in the lead in tx & oh. i hope the early voting puts obama over the top. if hillary wins tx & oh, she’ll win the nomination! vote for obama!

    Russell will probably call Sen. Obama the n-word and his wife a ho since he likes to defend using those words so much. I wonder if he is going to be able to convince his friend Paris Hilton to support Obama . . . and keep her promise with that whole “Vote or Die” thing; she didn’t vote last time so it’s time for her to take the latter.

  • Lovely One

    This is sooo tacky. Russell & Jay Z wait to endorse Obama once its OBVIOUS that he has the momentum to win. An example of bandwagoning at its best.

    They must’ve thought it would be good for thier career if they supported Barack. Fickle Hollywood ppl are wack. I could be wrong, but I dont think their endorsement is genuine.

    And all of that is coming from a Barack supporter.

  • hiswife

    There were other states where she was on top and came out on the bottom (where she probably always is)…

    Even if they are not registered voters all the people that take their music literally will go out and vote for OBAMA why??? Cuz Jigga said so…

  • OBAMA IN OHIO!!

    I vote EARLY this morning!! And got to work EARLY proudly wearing my sticker!

    @hiswife

    Thank you!!! It’s about damn time the Hip Hop artists used that same voice to bring about positive change…

    I agree!!!

  • hiswife

    I am a nervous wreck today because I know they will try to cheat him… Dear God please let this man win…

  • lovely and amazing

    Jizhonny come leezies.

    Better leezy than neezy.

    And why didn’t these brothers organize free outdoor concerts with voter registration and education in Texas and Ohio?

    That would be using their influence and a true endorsement not merely offering words at this late stage.

    Where was Fat Joe and the hispanic rappers who want to call themselves niggers when Bratlary tried to pit the hispanic community againt blacks. Why didn’t these hermanos organize free concerts for Obama, isn’t he their “nicca” too?!

    These men could have been serious mobilizers for the youth all this time but instead they stayed silent and watched as Obama fought upstream and overcame without them and now Jay and Russ jump on?!

    They should have been organized tours and events and cds and books in support of Obama!

    Well, it good they finally came around as they will need to sell records to Obama’s supporters.

    OBAMA 2008!

    YES WE CAN!

    @ Lovely One

    I feel you its like everyone wants to be down now that he is going to win. I can’t front i was the same way. In the begining i felt he wasn’t talking about anything, but now i agree with his policies. He is going to take it.. All the way to the White house. Barack ON!!!

  • NotoriousOne

    These cats should take it a step further and educate brahs on how losing your right to vote is critical in this day and age. Let these brahs know that even though they might have been convicted of a felony, there is an application process to regain their right to vote.

  • Velle

    Sweet! That was the illest robo call ever!

  • URBAN LEGEND

    RUSSELL SIMMONS HAS SUPPORTED THE REPUBLICAN PARTY HEAVY IN YEARS PAST…HE AND OPRAH ARE PLAYING THE SHYT OUT OF OBAMA B/C THEY KNOW CONSERVATIVES AREN’T GOING TO VOTE FOR HIM…IT IS POLITICALLY IMPOSSIBLE FOR HIM TO BEAT JOHN MCCAIN…ALOT OF OUR PEOPLE HAVE BEGUN TO THINK THAT IF HE BEATS HILLARY HE IS OUR NEXT PRESIDENT…THE GOAL OF THE PRIMARIES ARE TO ELECT A CANDIDATE COMPETITIVE ENOUGH TO NOT ONLY WHEN THE PARTY NOMINATION BUT WIN THE PRESIDENCY AS WELL…TODAY LAUNCHES A NEW REVOLUTION FOR OUR GENERATION.

    Someone needs to tell Hillary to GO AWAY!!!

  • Joe

    Almost a month after the primary elections in New York where it seems they could have had the biggest impact on the youth vote. I am glad that at least this is an area where hip hop can finally do something positive. Although I’m not sure anyone with half a brain would make a decision as important as this based on what they have to say. Go Barack!
