Jay-Z has said that the American people are right to criticise President Barack Obama. The rapper has been highly supportive of Obama in the past, but now explained that his status as the President means that he is fair game for any and all criticism. Hes the president, its fair, Jay-Z said, regarding the recent criticism of the Obama regime, which saw unemployment rise to 9.2% last month. He added: [You] cant fix it all in one day. Numbers dont lie. Unemployment is still high. Jay-Z made the comments during the first listening session for his new collaborative project Watch the Throne with Kanye West. During the session, Jay-Z also confirmed that he has begun work on his 12th solo album, and has recorded two tracks already. DS
