In an recent interview with the BBC today, rap superstar Jay-Z stated there is a possibility he will run for president…in the far future.
“Give me a chance,” Jay-Z said. “Maybe in eight years, I’ll be the president.”
Jay-Z was also asked how he thinks current President Barack Obama is doing. Basically, to thrown in a Jay-Z oldie metaphor for you all, the superstar thinks he has his hands full of “99 Problems”, saying: “In order to judge someone, you have to judge what they inherit,” said Jigga. “He inherited the worst economy, war, just a horrible time in American history. So if we think he can solve that, I mean, we don’t think he’s God, do we?”
But is this a little too far-fetched? Jay-Z has no doubt turned himself into a businessman, but President – would you vote for Hova?
