Watching the "throne" is one thing, but Jay-Z asked 99 of his best buds to cough up forty grand EACH to keep the "king" seated!
The rap mogul and his wife Beyoncé agreed to host a campaign fundraiser to re-elect President Obama next week in NYC!
One hundred guests are donating $40,000 each at Jay's 40/40 Club — HOV sure likes 40s, eh? — to dine and schmooze with not only the Perezident of the U.S. but also the King and Queen of Hip-Hop!
Wowzers!! That's four million dollars!!
Combine that with the $12k-per-pop photo opportunities Obamerz scheduled for earlier that day and his trip to the Big Apple should provide a hefty boost to his war chest!
We wonder why the Prez doesn't visit NYC more often? For that kind of scrill we would always keep an empire state of mind!!
