Jay-Z backs President Obama for 2012 re-election

Rapper Jay-Z has offered his support for U.S President Barack Obama's re-election campaign and is positive that he is still "the best man for the job".

The '99 Problems' hitmaker revealed to WENN that when Obama was voted in it made not only him, but the whole of America feel like "we were all a part of the American Dream finally. Like it was accessible to everyone."

"It was very inspirational. And it made everyone feel like that whole American Dream, like, we were all a part of the American Dream finally. Like it was accessible to everyone... Now we have to get a female president and a Latino president and then we are on our way."

"I still think he is the best man for the job, so yes (I will campaign for him). I think he got a raw deal and he got a really tough economy. It's going to test his mettle, which is great. You don't get anything that you can't handle. So he must be really special because he got (sic) a lot of work to do."
