The Obama campaign announced today that Jay-Z and NBA star LeBron James will hold a "Last Chance for Change" concert in Cleveland next Wednesday.

The announcement about Jay-Z comes a few days after he dedicated his 2003 song "99 Problems" to Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.

The lyrics to "99 Problems" include the famous line:

"If you’re havin’ girl problems I feel bad for you son
I got 99 problems but a bitch ain’t one."

According to MTV News Jay recently dedicated the song to McCain and a "homegirl," whom he described as "the one who says ‘You betcha.’ "

"I’m gonna get in trouble for this," Jay said, laughing, "but f— it, this is freedom of speech."
