On the night of 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 44th President of 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 of questions prepared. One of the pending questions on Jeezy’s list is how their relationship is able to stand the test of time.
“What do they do to keep it together,” Jeezy reveals his hypothetical question. “With the pressures of the outside world, how do they stay pure?”
