Jigga 4 President

February 4, 2012 · Posted in editorial · 44 Comments 

The Presidential election season is in full swing. When Bill Maher compared Mitt Romney to rich rappers, I thought that some of the rappers he mentioned would actually make good Presidents. Rappers are much more socially conscious than any of these guys running for President, especially Mitt. But, when people start to dig into rappers past is when we run into a wall. There is also a bunch of stereotypes that don’t help rappers out. Old folks vote too you know. After the jump I’ve listed some of the most successful rappers/entrepreneurs with the best chances of being called the President of the United States.

50 Cent
Curtis Jackson would make a terrific President. Curtis is an excellent businessman, and a great persuader. He knows how to sell his product. Whether it’s Vitamin Water, Street King, or G-Unit. Obama could learn a couple of things from Fif’ about persuasion. I mean, 50 has persuaded us into thinking he’s got another classic album coming. Like they say, he got rich, and stopped trying. Anyways, 50 is a smart dude, great leader, great at persuasion, and from watching his interviews he’s a pretty methodical speaker.

He’ll probably have a chance at this President thing if he weren’t so confrontational. Fifty has too big of a mouth. Being President means that if you can’t persuade the other side, you’re going to have to compromise. I don’t know if 50 could do that. He’ll probably just diss everybody in congress, and nothing would get done, ha. In addition, his past will bring him down. Unlike Jay, 50 Cent is still on his shoot you in the face music. Old folks aren’t going to like that. 50 Cent’s chances of ever becoming President are slimmer than that character he played in All Things Fall Apart.

Jay-Z
Out of all rappers, Shawn Carter is probably the most viable Presidential candidate. For one he’s a successful businessman. But, he’s not out of touch with the 99%. He’s been poor, therefore I believe that he would bring a lot of ideas that actually benefit most people. Mr. Carter has also held several key leadership positions as co-founder of Roc-a-fella, and Roc Nation, President/CEO of Def Jam, and co-founder of RocaWear. All are, or were thriving companies. Jay knows how to lead people, and get stuff done. In addition to the latter, Jay-Z is probably the wisest most articulate rapper out here. Just watch any of his interviews. He’s always speaking truth, and never gets stumped. He’s just full of knowledge. Plus, he’s illumintati, right? Ha.

Although Jay-Z would make the best President. As of right now he doesn’t stand a chance given his past. If people can’t accept the fact that Newt Gingrich “allegedly” cheated on his wife over a decade ago, no way are people going to accept the fact that Jay-Z once dealt drugs. The only reason Obama was elected was because he didn’t grow up like the stereotypical Black. I personally wouldn’t have a problem, because just from listening to his music you can tell Jigga has drastically moved away from his Reasonable Doubt days. Maybe, just maybe if every young person in America voted for Jay, he would have a chance. But then again, we haven’t heard about his policies, because running for President isn’t just about how good your resume looks. Jay-Z is still young though. We’ll see how much things change in 20 years.

Birdman
He has a star tattoo on his head……and fiscally insane.

P. Diddy
Puffy has a lengthy resume himself. Can anybody forget what he did with Bad Boy back in the 90’s? He made Sean John into an international multi-million dollar brand. Right now he’s doing big things with Ciroc. You can’t question his success. His eyes stay on the prize. Puff is also a great leader that can motivate his crew. Back in the 90’s he had his squad shooting people out in Quad Studios, ha. Kidding. Who knows who did it.

Although he’s a great leader, and motivator, he’s not that good of a speaker. Sean motivates by boasting and belittling the other side. He’s too much of a DJ Khaled. From my perspective he seems a bit too selfish. I don’t personally know the guy, but from his songs, and whenever he talks, he’s always boasting. Or maybe he keeps his charitable contributions low key. Either way, his Presidential opponents would rip him up. Plus, Sean is still rapping about the thug life. Out of 50, Jay-Z, and Diddy, Diddy has the least chances of becoming for President. Only behind Stunna.

Running for President is serious business. Especially for rappers whose controversial words might come back to bite them. The Common-White House controversy gave us a glimpse as to what might happen if a rapper chooses to run for President. News outlets would have a field day with Jay-Z’s “Big Pimpin'” or his interaction with the cop in “99 Problems”. Many people cannot accept the fact that people can change. Just because they rapped about killing back in the 90’s doesn’t mean they did it, or believe in it now. Rappers can’t get taken serious in the media either. If a rapper is in the news, it’s either Stephen Colbert joking about their stupidity, or something about a rapper carrying an unregistered handgun in New York of all places. When people can understand rappers, and accept the fact that people change, then we might see a rapper running for President. Maybe in 20 years, when this generation grows up. But, the only one with a real chance in my opinion is Jigga man.

Which rapper would you like to see in the White House?

If you’re not in the U.S. feel free to play around too. Which rapper do you think would make a good President/Prime Minister of your country?

    Eminem before jay z all day only rapper I know who doesn’t brag about his success. Kanye a good shout out, great speaker and allways speaks his mind. Birdman? Like wtf lool I’d say weezy instead of birdman for the fact how many people follow and listen to him. Weezy says jump I’m sure more than a milli in a week would jump!

    But I’m not from US so my comment prob aint valid I’m from uk and sadly there would never be a black man let alone a rapper as prime minster. Music doesn’t have an impact on society as much as in america. So no point discussin it really.

  16. Curt on February 4th, 2012 10:37 pm

    Eminem is the goat. But he’d be the worst option out of everyone haha. He doesn’t like being in publi, If you even mention him in a bad tone he’s gonna have you’re head in a song lol. In my opinion lupe would be that dude

    Wow dude that’s some ignorant shit right there.

    I apologize if you were offended. None was intended. I hate stereotypes, but just think about it. Given Obama also had a very exciting platform, but one cannot say that his upbringing didn’t play a factor.

    Yeah, well. How about we go get Makaveli the Don’s ashes from the ocean and from the lungs of the Outlawz then put that dust in the White House…… That would be a good idea too, huh? Wouldn’t it? ….Seriously, wouldn’t it

  26. pauli D on February 5th, 2012 8:29 am

    nas would be the best!
    he is very firm minded on what he believes in and knows how to keep people happy.
    he also holds a lot of charisma and respect which is what you need as a president!

    i would also like to say eminem, but his public image is tarnished enough and would probably start a civil war!
