Barack + Jay-Z

...equals Hip-Hop Politics! Now here's a mix of consciousness and swagger I can appreciate.

Responding to the aftermath of the 21st and worst debate with Sen. (Billary) Clinton on ABC News, Barack sent another wink to the hip-hop community by lifting a gesture popularized by Jay-Z that completely went over the heads of most lames (political analysts, mainstream media, media pundits, etc.) covering the presidential campaign.

For you lames who still don't get it, go here.

We should also note that Jay- Z recently endorsed Barack. Also, check out Barack's interview with Jeff Johnson on BET posted below. Sen. Obama told Johnson that of course he loves hip-hop and says explicitly, "...lately I've been listening to a lot of Jay-Z."

We can tell.
