Hillary Clinton has secured the rap mogul vote. She’s already got Pharrell‘s voteteamed up with G.O.O.D. Music president Pusha T and now Jay Z is organizing a pro-Clinton concert during the home stretch of the campaign in the crucial swing state of Ohio.

BuzzFeed News reports the Cleveland concert will serve as one of her campaign’s last big Get Out The Vote efforts and is “aimed at mobilizing black voters.” There are also rumors that hometown hero LeBron James, who recently endorsed Clinton, would make an appearance and join Jay Z at the event. And it would only be natural to wonder if Beyoncé shows up as well. Just don’t expect Kanye to be there.

The National will play a similar Clinton GOTV show in Cincinnati in November. Clinton has been struggling in the key battleground state, but FiveThirtyEight currently calculates she has a 59.8% chance of winning there. No candidate has won the presidency without carrying Ohio since John F. Kennedy in 1960.
