President Barack Obama Covers Jay-Z’s "99 Problems" (Sort of)

We have 37 days until voters decide between Democratic candidate President Barack Obama and Republican candidate Mitt Romney. The video above may really convince voters that Obama is the way to go. Talk about hard-core campaigning.

We know our president is a fan of Jay-Z, and perhaps the rap mogul himself helped fund this latest ad in which Obama raps: 

"99 Problems but Mitt ain't one/ With all your bank problems I feel bad for you, son/ I got 99 problems but Mitt's not one/ Hit me."

Alright so it's not actually President Obama rapping those lines, well not really. The latest Obama singing mashup is a remix done by Diran Lyons, in the same vain as the "Call Me Maybe" and "Never Gonna Give You Up." Although this one is a little more PG-13.

Entertainment Weekly speculates that the swearing parts of the rap can be attributed to the audio version of Obama’s book Dreams From My Father. He certainly has our vote now.
