Rapper Jay-Z will join NBA superstar LeBron James in Cleveland Wednesday to co-host a rally in support of early voting for Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama.
The event, to be held at Quicken Loans Arena, will also include a free concert by the hip-hop mogul, reports the Associated Press.
James, of the NBA’s Cleveland Cavaliers, attended a rally earlier this month in the city to encourage people to vote for Obama. He’s also contributed $20,000 to a committee supporting the presidential nominee.
Jay-Z, meanwhile, recorded a YouTube clip earlier this month to proclaim his support for Obama, and urge voters in Michigan to do the same on Nov. 4. [View below.]
