Jay Z will be helping Hillary Clinton rally minority voters in Ohio for a "Get Out The Vote" show next month.
Set for Nov. 4, just four days before the 2016 election, the rap mogul/philanthropist will be joined by "special guests" to help mobilize Ohioans to vote for Clinton, according to a release. A huge turnout in the African American community for Clinton in the swing state would be a crucial victory in the race against Republican Party rep Donald Trump, BuzzFeed reports.
Jay Z hosted similar events in 2008 and 2012 for President Barack Obama. A day before the 2012 election, Jay and Bruce Springsteen showed their support for the 44th president at a packed rally in Columbus' Nationwide Arena where Hov remixed a line in his 2004 hit "99 Problems." "I changed the lyric," Jigga said, before flipping the B-word to "Mitt" for Obama's then-opponent, Republican Mitt Romney. "I got 99 problems but Mitt ain't one."

Both Jay Z and his wife, singer Beyoncé, have backed Clinton, attending fundraisers for the Democratic nominee. Clinton has also tapped Jennifer Lopez to help mobilize Latino voters for a show in Miami on Oct. 29.
