Jay-Z: Barack Obama is the man to take us forward
Obama was elected on the back of a campaign "yes we can" and what came to be his most defining slogan: "change".
However, Obama inherited a government that has had to cope with the after-effects of a global recession and critics have attacked the lack of so-called progress he has made, something Jay Z is aware of.
The award-winning rapper said: "I still think he is the best man for the job, so yes [I will campaign for him].
"I think he got a raw deal and he got a really tough economy. It is going to test his mettle, which is great."
It's not the first time Jay-Z has supported the president. Last year he said Obama needed time to figure things out.
Speaking to the WENN recently, the millionaire musician recollected what it meant when Obama was elected as the first black president: "It was very inspirational. And it made everyone feel like that whole American Dream, like, we were all a part of the American Dream finally. Like it was accessible to everyone.
"Now we have to get a female president and a Latino president and then we are on our way."
