In an on-street interview, Indiana U.S. Representative Andre Carson poured out his supportfor Young Hov landing in the White House.
“I love JAY-Z – JAY-Z would be awesome in politics. I think Jay-Z, I think P. Diddy, I think Damon Dash, Master P, you know, they remind me of guys I grew up with from my hood. I grew up in the crack cocaine era. I think these guys show that if you believe in yourself, you network and you have a great team, you can be what you want to be. I say Hova for president.” (TMZ)
Carson later explained why Young Hov would have a chance going head-to-head with President Donald Trump.
“If you look at President Trump’s candidacy, a lot of people wrote him off. And I think if you look at JAY-Z’s background, he’s an excellent businessman. He’s very thoughtful. He has been open about his personal growth, so why not? We’re living in a different time when the American people are open to all kinds of possibilities. It could be electing someone from the artist community. We did it with Ronald Reagan. We could do it with JAY-Z.” (TMZ Live)
A few days ago, 4:44 producer No I.D. recalled talking to JAY about landing a grip of Grammy Awards nominations.
