A number of MC's have spoken out in the last two days about Barack Obama wining the Democratic nomination for President.
"Today is one of the greatest and proudest moments of my life," Diddy told MTV of Obama's nomination. "Not just as a black man, but as an American. Senator Obama becoming the Democratic nominee for president is history in the making and proof that we do live in the greatest country in the world!"
Young Jeezy, who recently performed in a "F Bush" shirt added:
"For real, as bad as we try to ignore it and act like it ain't got nothing to do with us, it's real," Jeezy said. "What [the rest of the country] feared for a long time, a black president, it could possibly happen right now."
"I know however it comes out, [the election] is gonna affect all of us," Jeezy continued. "It's like trying to fix a record label that's bankrupt. These different households — middle class [or] people on Wall Street waking up bankrupt every day when the stocks ain't the same. It's a hard job for any one person to fix the country. It's a lot of people. I can't make everybody happy in my family. I know damn well can't nobody make everybody happy in the country. You gotta deal with too many issues."
Even 50 Cent, who early on in the primaries supported Hillary Clinton, has changed his tune.
"I heard Obama speak," 50 told MTV. "He hit me with that he-just-got-done- watching-'Malcolm X' [thing], and I swear to God, I'm like, 'Yo, Obama!' I'm Obama to the end now, baby!"
Meanwhile, Nas has decided to release his new Green Lantern produced song "Black President, which was originally intended for the DJ's 'Barack Obama Mixtape', and now include it on his upcoming album.
"I was making the song for the Barack Obama mixtape, and Nas heard the song and called, like, 'Yo, I need that for my album,' " Green Lantern explained. "I said, 'Of course, but it's gotta come out now, 'cause it's so timely.' With his album dropping July 1st, it worked out. I think he does it justice. He not only supports the idea of Obama being the president, he actually questions it in the second verse in true Nas fashion. He's positive, uplifting, but critical at the same time."
