No, that's not a typo. The Democratic presidential hopeful is a Jay-Z fan. During a brief interview with Angie Martinez of New York's Hot 97 FM, Senator Barack Obama disclosed that while he prefers "Ol' Skool" artists like Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, and Miles Davis, his kids help keep him abreast with the current music scene.
"On my iPod, I've got a little bit of Jay-Z and a little bit of Beyonce," said the senator. "A little bit of that stuff. I don't want to pretend that I know as much as my 9-year old or 6-year old daughter."Being the round-the-clock politician that he is, Obama also seized the opportunity to discuss his presidential campaign and why he deserves the African-American vote.
Listen to the interview for yourself and let us know what you think.
