Jay-Z made more radio rounds while in the U.K. and during his interview with BBC’s Natalie Jamieson, he speculates that in 2018, maybe he’d run for U.S. President.
“Give me a chance. Maybe in eight years, I’ll be the president. In order to judge someone, you have to judge what they inherit In order to get to that sort of success and that dream, you have to go through some peaks and valleys. 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. 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.”
In another interview, he spoke with Evan Davies on Today about his entrepreneurial acumen and American politics.
