If you're #TeamObama you probably received an email yesterday evening from none other than Queen B a.k.a Beyonce Knowles!
Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z are hosting a campaign fundraiser for President Obama (date still to be determined) at Jay's 40/40 Club in New York. Can you imagine popping bottles with Hip Hop Royalty and the President?!? The invite email required you to make a donation and be entered into a drawing that would cover airfare and hotel and even allow you to bring a guest to the event; not to shabby!

“Who gon stop me?
No brakes, I need State Farm
So many watches I need eight arms,
One neck but got eight charms (who gon stop me huh?)”
The above is the lyrics of one of Jay Z and Kanye West's most spirited tracks, on the "Watch the Throne" album. The track titled, “Who Gon Stop Me” is a song about being indestructible, proceeding full force, and taking the advice of those that have come before you. The U.S. throne has been occupied by 44 different individuals, all of which have been men. Three women have targeted the ‘Throne,’ but one seems to have what the others didn’t.
