Power Couples With a Cause

Hov, Bey, and the Obamas? So necessary!  Jay and Bey will be hosting  Barrack Obama’s last fundraising event in NYC September 18, before the election, November 6.  This event capped at 100 guests, $40,000 per ticket, will be hosted at the 40/40 Club; regular.

Recently Mr. President crashed  Jay’s performance in Philly at the  Made In America Festival  (after the jump) and that was pretty dope. I love seeing my two favorites on opposite,but the same side of life’s spectrum interact in the way that these two do. Truly respect two of the biggest African American power couples uniting for a serious cause and making black look so beautiful.

And you really thought Obama wasn’t on the text? Kuh.

Video: Jay-Z Running all Towns

Two days ago, seeing the Made in America teaser had me… inquisitive. Not knowing if it was a music video for the record filmed through a kaleidoscope or a documentary, the Hova gawd spilled the beans by announcing the two-day Budweiser Made in America Music Festival. Jay stood side by side with the mayor of Philidelphia, Michael A. Nutter at a press conference mentioning the event is set for September 1st and 2nd, filled with 28 acts from hip-hop to jazz, and a portion of the proceeds will go to local non-profit organizations in Greater Philly and South Jerz through United Way. The Roots already hold it down for the Roots

Mind you, Barclays Center is due for opening at the end of September with Jay christening the stage first night.  Along with Rihanna, the two Roc Nation stars will star in BBC Radio 1 Hackney Weekend in London June 23-24; their cultural festival before the Olympic Games, starting July 27.

Hmph. 2012 summer will be realer than I thought.

Shouts to Rapdose on the footage.
