Jay-Z harboring presidential hopes

London: Jay-Z says he may run for US president if given a chance in eight years time.

The 40-year-old rapper was talking about the American midterm elections and President Barack Obama`s term in office so far, when he said he wished he was president, reported BBC.

"Give me a chance. Maybe in eight years, I`ll be the president," said Jay Z.

The Grammy Award winning star also said that Obama is having to deal with one of the toughest times in America`s history, which must be kept in mind while criticising him as a president.

"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," he said.

"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," said the hip hop superstar.
