Washington, October 21 : American rapper Eminem has declared his support for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.
The Stan hitmaker hopes that Obama will rectify the mistakes of President George W. Bush.
He says that he has decided to vote in Obama's favour because the country "needs something to change".
"I'll vote for Barack. I can't get too political because I don't know enough (about the candidates' policies)," Contactmusic quoted him as telling the BBC.
"I mean, I know we are going into a recession. Pardon the cliche but we need something to change. I think Barack would be a breath of fresh air, to get in there and actually get what's left of the Bush administration out the door," he added.
