Jay-Z tells Billboard about Blueprint for a Takeover

Whatever blueprint
jacked from the vault behind this portrait of founding father
George Washington
has landed him in the ultimate architecht's seat. Did Shawn Carter suspect that America would be this ripe for change, given the window of opportunity that another curious George (Bush, that is) has left wide open for a hostile take-over? First, no WMD. Then, no capture of Osama bin Laden. Now Homeland Security joins the ranks of 9-1-1: a joke in every town?

"It's really numbing," the rap impressario told Billboard magazine, when saying he stands 100% behind his Bush-bashing artist,
Kanye West.

"You can't believe it's happening in America," Hov added. "You wonder, what's going on? Why were people so slow to react? I don't understand it."

The Roc-a-Fella rapper-turned-label-president at Def Jam says he wants to speak with Diddy about starting a fund that would benefit African Americans during times of crisis. "Just in case anything like this happens in the future, we can do what the elder Bush and [former President Bill] Clinton are doing for our people specifically," Jay added.

Jigga "who?" Jigga "what?" How sweet is this presidential thinking?

Talk about getting your "grown man" on? I'm already envisioning Hov heading the NAACP or Congressional Black Caucus in a decade. (At least!) Please believe, there will come a day when a rapper runs his or her rap ish on a higher, political plane.

Now, no less than GQ magazine has named S. Dot its International Man of the Year, an honor presented to him last night by an equally blinged-out and giddy Jade Jagger, daughter of Mick. So this famous photo of Jay may be more telling than even we fans know. Without a (reasonable) doubt, a razor-sharp hustla like the Jigga Man would move the crowd a lot more quickly in a crisis than the current leadership.

How's this for an "Encore": President Carter sounds so nice, America's 'bout to choose one twice?!

Hova! Hova! Hova! Hova!

Yeah right. That nikka jikka ain't trying to get in politics. Not with all the street game he suppossedly ran back in the day. Cats like that got a past to keep secret. Hip-hop is the only game that accepts one with a past and actually pays you off for it.
