Jay Z 99 Problems

Jay-Z makes his allegiances clear as he slams Mitt Romney during a performance of ’99 Problems’ at a rally for President Obama in Columbus, Ohio on Nov. 5 — but did he go too far?

Jay-Z has been a staunch supporter of President Barack Obama and his bid for reelection in the 2012 presidential race. He and wife Beyoncé hosted a private fundraiser for the president on Sept. 18, and on Nov. 5, the day before the election, he performed at a rally in Columbus, Ohio — where he replaced curse words with Republican candidate Mitt Romney‘s name!

During the rally, which also featured a performance by Bruce Springsteen and a speech by the president himself, the hip-hop mogul performed his legendary hit “99 Problems,” but not without a few timely adjustments. “I have to do it — I’m sorry,” he told the crowd. “I didn’t get clearance from the Secret Service. I changed the lyrics of this song. It goes like this: ‘If you havin’ world problems, I feel bad for you son. I got 99 problems, but Mitt ain’t one.'”

He then performed his hit to the crowd’s delight, though not everyone enjoyed the lyric swap. Mitt’s senior communications adviser, Ted Newton, tweeted, “A new low for Obama presidency: Jay-Z replacing a misogynistic swear word with the word ‘Mitt’ as he performs at an Obama event.”

Do you think Jay-Z crossed a line with his lyric dig at Mitt, HollywoodLifers?

Obama is only amazing if you are on welfare… If you work like I do, try to afford gas to get back and forth. So now I will quit and wait for my HANDOUTS like all the lazy racist blacks did. I am enlightened now.
