Rapper and media mogul Jay-Z spoke recently about the topic of same-sex marriage and whether or not he thought that President Obamaís support of same-sex marriage will cost him votes in the upcoming election. The rapper was very clear that he is a supporter of same sex marriage as well as the President.

On the topic of same-sex marriage:

Iíve always thought of it as something that is still holding the country back. What people do in their own homes is their business, they can choose to love whoever they love. Thatís their business. Itís no different then discriminating against blacks. Itís discrimination, plain and simple.

Regarding whether or not the Presidentís views will cost him votes in the upcoming election:

I think itís the right thing to do, so whether or not it costs him votes Ö itís really not about votes, itís about people. So whether or not it costs him votes, itís the right thing to do as a human being.

Any chance we can get Jay Z on the phone with Stevie Wonder????
