The rapper's view was supported by his wife, Beyonce who was with him at the concert.

She said, “There was a time when a woman’s opinion did not matter. Less than 100 years ago women did not have the right to vote, look how far we’ve come to having voice to being on the brink of history by electing the first woman president.

“But we have to vote. The world looks to us as a progressive country that needs change, I want my daughter to grow up seeing a woman lead our country and know that her possibilities are limitless."

Most celebrities over the globe are also in support of Clinton becoming president, and have promised to do something outrageous if her opposite wins the race.
