We did not see this coming from the former Brooklyn drug dealer turned hip-hop mogul, but after Trump winning, anything is possible. So, we are not surprised at the possibilities of this being true.
According to reports (which may just be rumors at this stage):
“Jay Z is really considering running for political office in New York and Beyonce is 1000 percent supportive of her husband’s decision.”
“Beyonce and Jay Z became friends with Barack Obama and Michelle and they have always been close with the Clintons,” said the source. “The Obamas and Clintons have told Jay Z on numerous occasions that he should get involved in politics.”
“They told him that he would make a great leader,” the source told Radar. “Jay Z not only has star power, but he would have a ton of support from his fans, as well as from past administrations.”
Said the insider, “Beyonce told Jay Z that running for political office would be a really good next step for his career and she feels like it will also give him a sense of purpose.” Source
We can see Mr. Carter running for office in the future. Jay-Z is a really smart strategist who knows just who to align himself with and what affluent circles to run in. We will not count the rap legend out. Plus, he is getting up there in age (in rap years), so why not choose another career path? There is no more for him to prove in the hip-hop world.
