Jay-Z Invites Obama To Perform At His Philadelphia Music Festival

Jay-Z barack Obama made in america music festival

Do it! Do it! Do it!

Jay-Z is launching the Made In America Music Festival this fall in Philadelphia … but he may not be the biggest name in attendance. The famous rapper told Rolling Stone magazine that he "absolutely" wants Barack Obama to at least make an appearance or even perform!

He knows the Prez can belt out a few tunes without breaking a sweat and he definitely fits the festival's theme. Jay revealed to the mag:

"I'm gonna give him a call and I'm gonna try to get him to perform – do a little rendition of Al Green – but I doubt it. I think that opens up the political season. He'll be so far into helping the world that he probably won't have time, but I'm absolutely going to ask him."

We're sure Obama will be busy campaigning, but just one song on such a large stage would capture every young vote in attendance, that's for sure!

Even if the POTUS can't make the event, it sounds like there is a better chance that Beyoncé will be there.

Jay said he purposely scheduled the event "far enough away that she'd have a little gap in her schedule, so hopefully that works."

And hopefully we see a little husband and wife collaboration!

    Enough already… American politics have to cute the cord to the entire entertainment industry. The day the President of the United States stoops so low as to perform at or with Jay Z is the day that all Americans should hang their heads in shame. Whats next, Rhinna hangin on the front lawn of the White House… catchin some rays? Politicians, in order to keep credible, need to cut the crap. It now appears the president wants to play with all the 'cool kids' and visa versa. The rich and famous help him make millions of dollars, yet untold numbers of people are homeless, have lost their jobs and are living in tent cities. Never have been so proud to NOT be American

    Why on earth would someone vote for him just because he sings a song on stage? If that's how you people think we should vote for a president, then America will never be the country that it was. Vote Republican… get this ass out of here.

    seriously perez? he's the president, shouldnt he be in his office day and night thinking of ways out of the mess the country is in?? and if people vote because of his ability to sing….well, i guess that's why he's president, cause it certainly isn't cause he knows what he's doing

    Jughead can't draw a large enough audience anymore, so he needs one that's built-in.
    -
    Obummer's numbers are in freefall.
    The media can't save him.
    Too many people are hurting.
    -
    Keep talking about gay marriage, Zippy. It's a real winnah!
    -
    Must be a bitch trying to support Obummer, with only his own miserable record to tout.
    So they ignore it and come up with condoms and gays — The Shiny Objects Strategy.

    Obama: "Hey, the buck stops uhhhhhh, hey look over there!"

    174 days — till we purge these jackholes from the White House.

    Yeah, he'll need the extra cash after November 6th 2012, since he will be unemployed soon after!

    Paid for by the American people!! Amazing!! Like to know how much money is made by the fund raisers and the profit if he had to pay for the bill to protect him and get his peeps all to the locations that he jumps from one state to another!!! MILLIONS on the taxpayers while he keeps the fund raiser money!! WAKE UP!!

    I'm a big fan of you Perez but come on, "…just one song on such a large stage would capture every young vote in attendance." I'm 24 and I will let you know there is no way watching the President sing would ever make me vote for him, EVER. It would be an insult and embarrassment to our country.

    These two are into that New World Order shit. They are slowly regrouping all races,youth,gays etc. I lost respect for Jay-Z, Oprah & Obama's.
