Young Jeezy Supports Barack Obama

In the new August Vibe Magazine cover story with Young Jeezy, he is quoted as saying "No disrespect to Barack, but I fuck with John McCain," which came moments after shaking the hand of the Arizona Senator and presumptive Republican Presidential nominee on the set of his Saturday Night Live performance with Usher in May. He adds in the article, "I like Barack, but at the same time I wanted to see what McCain was talking about." Jeezy, who has been a visible Obama supporter in recent weeks and has been seen wearing the message "My President is Black" during various appearances has just posted a video response to clarify his position:

"I represent the Democratic party...I've never been nor do I ever plan to be a John McCain supporter," says Jeezy. "I support Barack Obama."
