Jay-Z in DC

Apparently Young Jeezy performed in DC last Sunday and brought out Jay-Z to perform the as yet unreleased remix to “Black President” on the eve of President Barack Obama’s inauguration. Jay absolutely kills his verse (lyrics reprinted below), and it’s dope to see the crowd go bananas after he spits it.

Lyrics to Jay’s verse, “Black President” remix:

My President is black
My Maybach too
And I’ll be goddamned if my diamonds ain’t blue
My money’s dark green
And my Porsche is light grey
And I’m headed for DC, anybody feel me ?

My president is black – in fact he’s half white
So even in a racist mind, he’s half right
Even if you’ve got a racist mind, it’s all right
My President is black, but his house is all white
Rosa Parks sat so Martin Luther could walk
Martin Luther walked so Barack Obama could run
Barack Obama ran so all our children could fly
So I’m a spread my wings, you could meet me in the sky
Already got my own clothes, already got my own shoes
I was hot before Barack, imagine what I’m gonna do
Hello miss America, hey pretty lady
Red white and blue flag, wave for me baby
Never thought id say this shit, baby I’m good
You can keep your puss, I don’t want no more Bush
No more war, no more Iraq
No more white lies – My President is black

I also really liked Hova’s performance at the Neighborhood Ball on Inauguration night (posted below), where he performed his new song, “History.” I don’t know man, I just dig the classiness that he brought to this song/performance (looking like Malcolm with the wide rimmed glasses Jay’s been real into lately), on some grown man shit.
