With the presidential election just weeks away, President Barack Obama supporters are coming out blazing as seen in a new pro-Democrat "99 Problems" fan-made clip currently circulating online.
In the video, which consists of carefully spliced up President Obama footage, Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney feels the wrath.
President Obama's got 99 problems, but Mitt Romney ain't one. No, seriously, watch the video up there, that's exactly what he says. Kind of. Editing, what editing? But no, seriously, this is a supercut of Obama clips fashioned as a remix of Jay-Z's forever classic "99 Problems." Though it's a little iffy on exactly how pro-Obama it is - lyrics go from "The year is 2009/ And the White House is mine/ But the economy's in full mother-fucking decline/ My choices at the time were to shit on the poor or/ Fellate the banks to get elected once more" to "Now I'm not trying to fight J.P. Morgan Chase/ Got their campaign dollars so I can win the race" - it's masterfully crafted for sure. You can check out the remix above. It you're at work, you might want to break out the headphones, because it's a little bit explicit. (Complex)
Last week, President Obama showed up at a fundraiser put together by Jay-Z.
September 18, 2012: President Obama had some high words of praise for his hosts on Tuesday night, joking that he's actually got a lot in common with rap superstar, and new dad, Jay. "Jay-Z now knows, you know, what my life is like," he said. "We both have daughters. And our wives are more popular than we are ... So we've got a little bond there. It's hard, but it's okay." He also noted that first wife Michelle and his daughters Malia and Sasha were mad at him because they could not make it to the fundraiser on a school night. Obama thanked both stars for their generosity toward his children and singled out Beyoncé for being a good example to the girls. "Beyoncé could not be a better role model for our daughters because she carries herself with such class and poise," he said. "And has so much talent." (MTV)
A few weeks ago, comedian Iman Crosson put together his pro-Obama "I Don't Like" spoof video.
Well, someone has found a way to connect President Obama to Chicago's emerging school of gangsta rap. Comedian Iman Crosson, who has gained fame for his Obama impression under the named "Alphacat," recorded this video of Obama delivering his Democratic National Convention acceptance speech to the tune of Chief Keef's "I Don't Like." "Romney's campaign...that's that stuff I don't like/Lyin' Republicans...that's that stuff I don't like/The Tea Party...that's that stuff I don't like/Mitt Romney's face/That's that..that's that stuff I don't like."

On rap star Lil Wayne's Dedication 4, he takes a swipe at Mitt Romney.
"Cashed Out" is a cover of "Cashing Out," by a track by southern rapper Ca$h Out. If that seems redundant, it is -- Wayne's Dedication mixtape series features the Young Money Cash Monday Billionaires label boss doing his best to outdo other performers on their own beats. (Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't .) Wayne's version starts with the following intro (voiced by someone other than Wayne: "As another election year upon us. This last four years has been good to me. A couple of dollars in a couple different bank acccounts. Some here, some off shore. N---a call me Mitch Romney!" It's unlikely that this person doesn't know that Romney's first name is actually Mitt. It's more likely that this person wanted you to notice that "Mitch" rhymes with "b--h." (Huffington Post)
