Five Rappers With Presidential Potential


These days with the game being so bureaucratic, rappers have to have a political/business side to make it big.

Not only have rappers become presidents of record labels and companies – Jay-Z (Def Jam), JD (Def Jam), Jim Jones (VP, Koch), DJ Khaled (Def Jam South) – but Wyclef tried to take it to the next level when he unsuccessfully attempted to become the Prez of Haiti.

While Wyclef may be the first rapper to attempt to run for president of a country, he isn’t the only MC who we can see carrying the title of commander and chief in some way, shape, form or fashion.

    And please take the TI picture down next to the POTUS…This fool is going back to the pen. His picture should not be anywhere in sight. I have no pity on TI. I could even fathom Lil Wayne (who the POTUS dropped his name in a discussion with youth), but not TIP!!!
