Jay-Z hints at possible future in politics

In an interview with BBC Radio 1 Newsbeat Wednesday, Jay-Z hinted at running for the country’s highest office.

“Give me a chance…Maybe in eight years, I’ll be the President,” he said when asked if he’d be interested in getting into politics someday.

And he started off his “campaign” by giving his thoughts on what happened during Tuesday’s mid-term elections. Jay-Z has publicly supported President Obama.

“In order to judge someone, you have to judge what they inherit,” he said. “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. He’s a human being.

“He’s going to need time to figure that out… In order to get to that sort of success and that dream, you have to go through some peaks and valleys and it’s been two years.”
