Jay-Z to Host Barack Obama Fundraiser at 40/40 Tonight

It turns out the Jay-Z may actually have “Obama on the text,” as previously proclaimed on Blueprint 3′s “On to the Next One.” The Jigga Man and his wife Beyonce are set to host a fundraiser for President Barack Obama at Hov’s Flatiron sports bar 40/40 tonight (September 18).

On his official Twitter page (@S_C_), Jay-Z—who hardly ever uses the social networking site— tweeted, “Guest list. Obama plus 40,” affirming that the President of the United States will be present at 40/40 this evening.

Obama, who’s in New York City for his national fundraiser tour, is expected to greet 100 supporters who’ll each pay $40,000 to attend the ceremony. This will add up to a sum of $4 million for the president’s campaign. The fundraiser comes on the heels of  a tight press junket that includes a visit to David Letterman’s Late Show. Obama is expected to hold court at 40/40 at approximately 9:45 p.m. —Jaeki Cho (@JaekiCho)
