(AllHipHop News) Dwayne “Lil Wayne” Carter has never been shy about showcasing the fact he is a huge fan of Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter. The Young Money boss even has Hov’s “Lucky Me” lyrics tattooed on his body.
So it comes as no surprise that if Wayne had to pick one emcee to seek the highest office in the land, the choice would be his “Mr. Carter” and “Hello Brooklyn 2.0” collaborator. Weezy was asked about a potential Hip Hop POTUS during a conversation for “The Bumbu Room” interview series.
“If there was a rapper that should ever run for president, I believe that rapper should easily be Jay-Z,” declared Lil Wayne. “I don’t even think there’s a ‘why’ that should come after that. Plain and simple. I would love to see [Beyoncé] as the First Lady… another Carter in the White House.”
Jay-Z has never publicly expressed interest in possibly following in the footsteps of U.S. Presidents such as Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush. However, the Roc Nation founder did endorse Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012 as well as Hillary Clinton in 2016. He has also been an outspoken critic of the current Commander-in-Chief Donald Trump.
