Jay-Z – Talks Politics, We Need Less Government

Jay-Z on PoliticsHov speaks his mind on politics, and although he’s not the biggest fan of them, he does show his support for President Barack Obama.

Jay-Z, not afraid of taking a stance in politics, whether that be supporting Barack Obama or gay marriage, but it turns out he’s not actually a big fan of politics. 

Hov spoke to MTV News on the subject outside the 40/40 Club in New York, and you’ll probably won’t ever catch the superstar in office, “To be honest with you I think a lot of people are serving their own agendas, so they just argue back and forth and they think about their next term,” he said. “And it’s more about themselves than about the people. They’re servicing the people, but we rarely get anything done because they’re going back and forth with whatever they’re doing, so I’m not really into politics.”

However, that doesn’t mean he doesn’t support certain leaders. He shared why he supports President Obama, blaming it on his vision, “I support Barack because I gotta respect that sort of vision. I gotta respect a man who is the first black President ever. To have that sort of vision and dream, I have to support that.”

Even so, he still thinks we need less government in our lives: “I don’t even like the word politics. It implies something underhanded and I think we need less government.”
