Jay Z Gearing Up To Throw A Concert In Support Of Hillary Clinton

He’s With Her!!

Jay Z is set to hold a get out the vote concert for Hillary Clinton in Ohio aimed at mobilizing black voters, three sources told BuzzFeed News on Monday.
On Tuesday, the Clinton campaign officially announced the concert would be held in Cleveland on Nov. 4, just four days before the election.

“Jay Z will be joined at the concert by special guests to encourage unity and urge Ohioans to support Clinton by voting early or on Election Day,” the Clinton camp said in a statement.
Tickets will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis from Friday.

The concert — perhaps the centerpiece of the “closing argument” strategy built to turn out this group — is a major coup for the Clinton campaign, which has struggled to excite young black voters. It’s a key part of the coalition they need to build to defeat Trump in several battleground states, but especially Ohio where she has trailed more consistently than in most swing states. High turnout among younger voters of color would make it virtually impossible for Trump to win.

Senior Democrats, meanwhile, have signaled publicly that Clinton has indicated staff should do whatever it takes to turn out young black voters and the concert is viewed as one of the last major voter mobilization moves the campaign will make before election day.

In 2012, he performed a show along with Bruce Springsteen in Columbus for President Obama’s reelect campaign, at which the president spoke. Jay Z himself has been particularly outspoken on police violence, an issue of importance to young voters going to the polls.

He’s a validator on the issue, who’s interpolated references to Trayvon Martin in a well-received freestyle, and more recently, after the killings of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling, released statement a song via his streaming service Tidal called “Spiritual.”

A Democratic source familiar with the concert said they wouldn’t be surprised if Cleveland Cavaliers star Lebron James made an appearance after endorsing Clinton earlier this month.
Jay Z and Beyoncé long ago endorsed Clinton and chopped it up with Bill Clinton during the Philadelphia Music Festival on Labor Day weekend.

The Clinton campaign has a series of concerts in the works in the remaining weeks of the campaign aimed at turning out voters. The National, Ohio natives, will play in Cincinnati next month, and Jennifer Lopez, whose pop tune “Let’s Get Loud” often plays at Clinton rallies, is doing a similar GOTV concert in Miami, Florida aimed at Latino voters on Oct. 29.

    August 2011 I launched Addicted2Candi.com with full force. I was excited to post, I was eager to see my traffic numbers weekly. All this occurred before social media took off. Then Instagram arrived and everybody and their mother wanted to be a "Blogger."
    When I first started I was totally against being called a blogger, because at the time bloggers were messy and posted negative gossip. That was never my thing. I am more of the Fashion x Music served with lite tea site. As Instagram popularity continued to grow I was more focused on posting daily there than on my site. I worked hard to achieve a following even though most of my followers just looked and never liked....lol. On August 11th, 2017 Instagram deleted my page for the second time. It happened in 2013 and then again a few weeks ago. I was totally hurt by the action especially since I am unsure why it was deleted.
    So I have decided to refocus my energy on my merchandise TheAddictedLife I'll continue to blog here and there but I'm bigger than just being a "Blogger." Branding Addicted2Candi is so much more than that. So maybe the universe is telling me to reroute to fulfill my dreams. For anyone that enjoyed my few podcast shows, I am releasing a new podcast this month. I have so much in store for myself and all of my supporters.
    Ladies please be sure to cop your Dope Chick With Ambition T- Shirt via wwww.TheAddicted.Life.com. My goal is to be a millionaire in this lifetime and that's what I am going to achieve. Don't ever give up on your dreams. But when necessary reroute and attempt to achieve your goals another way. And remember
    "Real ones may fall back but they never fall off!"
    Be sure to follow my merchandise page @ShopTheAddictedLife and Personal Page @Addicted2Candi on the gram.
