AHH Stray News: Jay-Z's Same Sex Marriage Ad, Bubba Sparxxx Goes Country, Future Hits #1
(AllHipHop News) Rapper Jay-Z has further endorsed same-sex marriage, in a new advertising campaign promoted by The Four 2012. The goal of The Four 2012 is to support the four states where there are same-sex marriage ballot initiatives. The advertising campaign is centered in the states of Maine, Minnesota, Maryland and Washington State. The advertisement uses Jay-Z's comments to CNN in May 2012, regarding gay marriage. "Discriminating against gays is no different than discriminating against blacks. It's discrimination, plain and simple," Jay-Z said.
