In this latest clip for the Obama campaign, Jay-Z speaks on the importance of voting and what Obama represents.

“For so long, there was this voice that was silenced out there as far as exercising your right to vote. I think it was a voice that was silent because people had lost hope. They didn’t believe that their voice mattered or counted…┬áNow people are exercising their right, and you are starting to see the power of our vote. He made it mean something for the first time for a lot of people.”
