President Obama is on the campaign trail... and he has one major supporter for his re-election in hip-hop: Jay-Z.

The hip-hop mogul has officially endorsed Obama, in a newly released campaign video by the President's campaign team, dubbed "The Power of Our Voice." In it, Jay says to use your voice at the polls this November and flex the power of your voice.

"What he represented to a nation of kids was hope," says Jay-Z of Obama. The visual is interspersed with footage of the President talking about Jay-Z at the "Made in America" festival in Philly this summer and how Hov embodies the American Dream.

"You can make it if you try. Jay-Z did," says Obama. "He got ahead because he worked hard, learned from his mistakes, and just plain refused to quit. That's the promise of this country."
