As the United States readies to either reelect President Obama or seek new leadership under Mitt Romney, longtime Obama ally Jay-Z showed his support by slightly tweaking the words to his Black Album hit “99 Problems.” Using the Rick Rubin-produced track as his own rallying cry of sorts, Mr. Carter coyly swapped out “bitch” for “Mitt” – a not so subtle indication that he thinks the incumbent has this election in the bag. The rapper joined Bruce Springsteen at President Obama’s election rally in Columbus, Ohio, on Monday and joked, “They told me no colorful language, so I brought two songs. I changed this one up, I have to do it, I’m sorry. I didn’t get clearance from the Secret Service, so if they come tackle me on here, y’all can save me.”
