Obama Praises Jay-Z at Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction

November 4, 2021

Saturday while inducting Jay-Z into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, former President Barack Obama gushed with praise for the rapper and major Obama supporter.

“I’ve turned to Jay-Z’s words at different points in my life, whether I was brushing dirt off my shoulder on the campaign trail, or sampling his lyrics on the Edmund Pettus Bridge on the 50th anniversary of the Selma march to Montgomery,” Obama said.

“Today Jay-Z is one of the most renowned artists in history and an embodiment of the American dream, a dream he has helped make real for other young people like him,” Obama continued. “So let me be one of the first to welcome home the kid from Marcy houses — as an official Rock and Roll Hall of Famer.”

Jay-Z and his wife pop star Beyoncé have been long-time supporters of various social justice causes, such as the Marxist revolutionaries of Black Lives Matter. Last year, Jay-Z’s Team ROC teamed up with other social justice groups in an effort to bail out rioters arrested after taking to the streets following the announcement that a police officer would not face criminal charges in the fatal shooting of Alvin Cole.

In September, Team ROC sued the Kansas City, Kansas, Police Department over allegations that it covered up instances of police misconduct.

In 2016, Beyoncé used her platform as a performer at the Super Bowl 50 halftime to stage a tribute to the militant Black Panther Party, which some called a blatant attack on law enforcement.

These are Obama’s close friends and major supporters — cop-hating radicals.
