Hip-hop mogul Jay-Z is harboring serious political ambitions - the rapper wants to run for the White House in 2018.

The Big Pimpin' hitmaker was a vocal supporter of current U.S. President Barack Obama during the 2008 election campaign, and continues to back the American leader despite a series of humiliating results at the midterm elections on Tuesday (02Nov10). And Jay-Z admits he would like to have a go at running the country himself.

He tells BBC Newsbeat, "In order to judge someone, you have to judge what they inherit. He (Obama) inherited the worst economy, war, just a horrible time in American history...give me a chance. Maybe in eight years, I'll be the president." (LR/WNWCRO/ZN)
