WASHINGTON, D.C. -- With George W. Bush all packed up and out of the White House, and Barack Obama ready to move in, hip-hop has never felt more patriotic. And the huge theme for Obama's inauguration weekend has been Young Jeezy's "My President." On Monday night, in the town nicknamed "Chocolate City," Jay-Z drove his audience wild with his new verse for the song's remix.

The show at the Warner Theatre was billed as the "Concert on the Eve of Change," but the crowd welcomed a very familiar Hov game-plan: knock 'em with his own hits and those of his big-name guests.

Beyoncé, Mary J. Blige, and Young Jeezy were among the guests who joined Jay at the Warner Theater last night. Jay was Young Jeezy's guest at a show in the same town one night earlier. Earlier on Sunday was the biggest Obama-related concert of all in front of Abraham Lincoln. Mary J. Blige and Beyonce also performed at that.

Jim Jones recently turned himself in to the NYPD after he fought with a friend of Jay-Z.
