A small part of the reason the President is black
I told him I got him when he hit me on the jack
“Jack” refers to the telephone (phone jack). When Obama decided he was running for President, one of the first people he asked to help raise votes was Jay-Z. In Jay’s interview with Howard Stern in 2012, he talks about this.
‘I got him’ could refer to both help with the youth and financial support, Presidential campaigns are REALLY expensive.
