Los Angeles, CA – On the night Barack Obama’s inauguration, JAY-Z performed his featured verse on Jeezy‘s “My President” for the first time live. During a conversation with HipHopDX, Jeezy revealed that it was his first time hearing Jay’s verse as well.
“I heard it in real-time with everybody in D.C., it was crazy,” Jeezy recalled.”It was phenomenal.”
Speaking on the memorable verse, Jay spits about his excitement over Barack Obama becoming the 43rd President the United States. “My president is black, in fact he’s half-white/So even in a racist mind he’s half right/If you have racist mind you’ll be aight/My President is black, but his house is all white,” he raps.
Elsewhere during his interview, Jeezy admitted that he is hopeful that he’ll have the chance to dine with Obama and his wife, Michelle. If the dinner does happen, the 41-year-old has a list questions prepared. One the pending questions on Jeezy’s list is how their relationship is able to stand the test time.
“What do they do to keep it together,” Jeezy reveals his hypothetical question. “With the pressures the outside world, how do they stay pure?”
