According to the BBC, the American rapper Jay-Z, intends to run for the U.S. presidency.
The surprising revelation had been made during conversations with some journalists on politics and public administration. The star also spoke about Barack Obama.
For Jay, it’s too early to assess the work of the American president: ”To judge someone, we must examine his heritage and it is still very early for that,” he said, in a somber tone. Jay-Z is married to pop singer Beyonce Knowles. The couple is famous both trying to preserve their intimate private lives, despite their constant exposure in the U.S. media.
The statement seems to bring light to the dark period of the singer’s old life, who had a poor childhood in Brooklyn. Jay-Z has already served three years in prison on parole after pleading guilty to stabbing a record producer in 1999.
