Hip-Hop Rumors: Is Will Smith The Next Barack Obama?

Jay-Z isn’t the only rapper that has President Obama on speed dial. According to T.I., rapper turned Hollywood heavy weight, Will Smith also has Obama on the text.

In a brand new interview with Billboard magazine, T.I. revealed that Will Smith called the Attorney General on his behalf and even went straight to the top and called President Obama to try to help him get out of jail when he violated his probation last year. Check out what he told Billboard below:

“Will [Smith] actually went as far as getting in touch with [attorney general] Eric Holder and the Obama administration trying to see if we could get some kind of release. He was very politely told that was not possible [laughs].

“He [Will Smith] was in deep discussions about it. And he’s been a huge contributor to the administration, and I mean not just in finances, I’m talking about time and other kinds of efforts, so it ain’t like his words were falling on deaf ears.”

So all of this got me thinking. Is Will Smith the next Barack Obama? Will told the BBC a few months back that he and the President actually talked about Will playing him in a movie.

“We talked about it a few months ago. I told him, joking … you just have to write the ending. So, he’s working on the ending right now.”

Okay, we all know that Will Smith would be an awesome choice to play the President in a movie – even Michelle Obama thinks so. But when I ask, “Is Will Smith the next Barack Obama?”, I’m not talking about playing the President in a movie, I’m talking about becoming the actual President of the United States one day. Heck, we’ve had actors become President before…remember Ronald Reagan?

If Will and Jada can keep it together and if Will can shake that nasty Scientology cult, I can totally see Will Smith running for President in let’s says 2020 or 2024. What do you think? Am I buggin’, or is this actually plausible? Oh yeah, and Will needs to keep his son Jaden away from the Kardashians!

Back to T.I. – hopefully he can keep his butt out of jail and get back to greatness. His new album, Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head will hit stores on December 18, and T.I. revealed that he has recorded over 100 songs for the album. Damn, I just hope it’s better than “No Mercy.”

    Speculation shit.

    • Makes sense ‘chet?

      Who would you vote for….Al Snitchton, Messy Jesse, or Will?

  • therealest1

    They actually had rumors that Will Smith was going to be Captain America awhile ago before it went into production. That was some wild shit right there.

  • On the real, I called it back in 04, figured Hillary 1st ( White women traditionally got rights before Black Men ) and then Will Smith. He & Jada contribute the maximum amount to each party, each year.

    O is the first African American pre, but Will would be the first “BLACK” pres & think about it, no crossover, clean cut image from the gate!

    Jada from Menace = +1 Hood chic

    It’s highly possible, if Will makes the moves…..as an independent.

    At least Will might address the real issues & if he learns about the economy, might even fix it!

      Barack is half white, so thats a default.
      And i know he cant make kool aid. Plus he was raised by white folks.
      He didnt come up like us. He half white raised by good wholesome white people.
      He got in cause white people knows he really one of them.
      Blacks voted for him cause he look like us. There will neber be a black president.
      I mean really black. First of all you know a black person going to have all his family moved in the white house. He got his nana, his cousins, and his half brothers and sisters, then that dont includes his wife peoples.
      Nigggas all walkkng up to the white house, in the middle of the night. and getting mad, when Secret service aproached them. Talking bout this my cousin house.
      Shet would be a mess. Plus how going to look when some important shet got to go down, and the white house got that smell of keisha coming from every which way. Reporters catching contact, everybody giggling and laughing,
      While he trying yo give a speech. No we not getting a real black president trust me.

      • True, but dig, you hit on a good point, he’s a dual citizen, by birth, Kenya & US, which makes him ineligible, because he is not a “Natural Born Citizen”, but by definition, a “Citizen at Birth”, which makes him ineligible…..so what is the reason the smart lawyers claim they don’t know this?

    Will Smith has NO education whatsoever. SO NO he will never be the next Obama! Money is not equivalent to political status, education and knowledge! (Shoot me now please. Put an end to my misery) Will Smith couldn’t even get Muhammad Ali right.
