Move over Barack Obama, it seemsJay-Z has got his eye on being President of the United States.
In a conversation about the midterm elections Stateside this week, the Empire State Of Mind rapper told BBC Newsbeat that he would consider running for the US presidency one day.
Jigga revealed: "Give me a chance. Maybe in eight years, I'll be the president."
When asked if he was disappointed in how Obama was doing as the current US leader, the rapper claimed: "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."
"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."
He added: "But it may be a good thing. Maybe the Republicans will win one of those houses, so this way they'll have to be responsible for whether a law gets passed, and they can't put it on Obama.
"In order to get to that sort of success and that dream, you have to go through some peaks and valleys. It's been two years."
