While in New York for a 40/40 x NBA 2K13 event, Jay-Z spoke to MTV about the politics that have been surrounding him lately, only a week after holding a fundraiser for President Obama in New York City, which raised over $4 million dollars. When asked if he saw a future in politics, Jay-Z quickly said the United States needs less government, but he still supports President Obama because of his vision and accomplishments.
Jay also sounded amazed when he talked about how much reach Hip-Hop actually has as a culture and how far he’s come. We know he swerved the question about a future in politics, but come on Hov: We don’t believe you, you need more people.
Senator Shawn Corey Carter, is that you?
