President Obama Raps New Budget Blueprint to the Tune of Jay-Z’s Album "The Blueprint"

WASHINGTON, D.C., Feb. 26, 2009 – This morning, before the White House press corps, President Obama unveiled a more than $3 trillion budget plan by rapping it to the tune of Jay-Z’s seminal album “The Blueprint.” As the president delivered his flow—which included scorching hot lyrics targeting health care, education, and renewable energy—hard copies of the 140-page plan were distributed to Congress.

When asked after the performance as to whether he’ll be releasing another “Blueprint” or proceeding directly to a comprehensive plan—tentatively dubbed “The Barack Album”—the president said that he isn’t quite sure, but has even considered walking away from the game altogether for a while and then coming back—seemingly out of nowhere—with a ridiculously hot budget plan.

Tracks on the president’s new budget blueprint included, “The Ruler’s Black,” “Bank Takeover,” “U Don’t Know (How Bad America Needs Affordable Health Care),” and “All I Need (is Bipartisan Support to Fund Education Reform).”
