Jay revealed his recent visit to the White House at a concert earlier this week.
Jay-Z took advantage of his time in the Beltway on Wednesday to visit 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. "I just came from the White House," he told the audience at the Verizon Center on the Washington, D.C., stop of his Blueprint 3 tour. According to The Washington Post, Hov made the remark during the last minutes of his concert. Officials confirmed to the Post on Thursday (March 4) that President Barack Obama had indeed met with the Brooklyn MC and the pair chatted briefly. In an interview overseas last month, Jay-Z revealed that when he once called President Obama, he heard BP3 playing in the background. (MTV)
The rapper has also discussed President Barack Obama's interest in his music.
Rapper Jay-Z said President Barack Obama was among his biggest fans and that he frequently played the artist's explicit tunes while exercising, it was reported Friday. The 10-time Grammy award winner said in an interview with U.K. broadcaster the BBC that the President enjoyed working up a sweat to the sounds of Jay-Z's latest album, Blueprint 3. "Barack loves hip hop. When I called him he was playing Blueprint in the gym," the star said. (My Fox)
