Jay-Z for President

Jay-Z has said that he is considering running for the American presidency in eight years time.

The superstar rapper was talking to BBC’s Newsbeat about the American mid-term elections, saying: “Give me a chance. Maybe in eight years I’ll be the President.”

When asked if he was disappointed in Barack Obama’s regime, Jay-Z replied: “In order to judge someone you have to judge what they inherit. He inherited the worst economy, war, just a horrible time in American history.”

“He’s a human being. He’s going to need time to figure that out.”

Jay-Z said he is in the UK to “have fun and enjoy himself”. He also revealed that he’s heading to Bath to work on new material with Kanye West.
