Jeezy: “I know ya’ll thanking a lot of people right now…I want to thank two people. I want to thank the motherfucker overseas that threw two shoes at George Bush, and I want to thank the motherfuckers who helped them move they shit up out the White House. Get it moving bitch! My president is motherfucking black!”
Jay-Z: “My president is black, in fact he’s half white/So even in a racist mind he’s half right/If you’ve got a racist mind it’s alright/My president is black, but his house is all white!”
I couldn’t be more excited for this record whenever it actually comes out, although probably seeing these two play it at a D.C. afterparty two nights ago will be the pinnacle of somebody’s concert-going life. I understand that. I’m OK with that. I’m just going to watch this video until 12:05…[Via VladTV]
Bonus: Official “My President” video, which also looks like it was a lot of fun.
