Hip Hop Support Pays-Off As Obama Wins Election!!!

Barack, the first African-American President…

Last night America rewrote the history books as Senator Obama became the first African-American President. With 338 votes to candidate John Mc Cain’s 155, Obama will be the 44th man to hold the top position in the White House.

As voters were about to make there way to the polls Mary J Blige, Diddy and Jay-Z all appeared on stage at a "get out the vote" rally, drawing in thousands of people who waited hours for them to turn up.

"Y'all know that this is a swing state right here," Diddy told the Pennsylvanian crowd. "This is gonna be the state that decides the election!" Diddy predictions came true as hours later Obama was declared the new President of the United States of America.

“The vision of the hip hop generation and its young people is in full and glorious effect tonight,” Russell Simmons told AllHipHop. “While many older Americans, who marched and struggled so hard so Senator Obama could run for president of the United States never dared to believe in his candidacy's real potential, young people, particularly the hip hop community, had faith and their imagination became our reality.”

Diddy was overjoyed as the results came in. "This is the proudest day of my life," exclaimed the mogul to AllHipHop.

The next President Barack Obama is ready to take office and told the Nation his views; “If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible, who still wonders if the dreams of our founders are alive in our time, who still questions the power of out democracy, tonight is your answer,” he stated to supporters who had waited for hours in Chicago’s Grant Park.

What are your views? Can President Obama change America and then the world?
