HE helped get the first black man into the White House - and now JAY-Z reckons he knows how to fix Broken Britain too. The power to bring change, he says, in in our own hands.
The US rapper who picked up a Brit for Best International Male Solo Artist on Tuesday tells The Sun in an exclusive interview that change will only come if people use their vote at the next election.
However, he reckons neither GORDON BROWN nor DAVID CAMERON have the charisma of PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA.
Jay-Z said: "Everyone needs new blood once in a while. And Britain needs it to shake up the country. People are calling it Broken Britain, so there's obviously a problem.
"Someone needs to reinvigorate and galvanise the country and give it something to believe in. That means a leader with charisma to get the youth out to vote.
"The rise of the BNP is also a problem. Power is dangerous in the hands of the wrong person and it's up to the people to get them out of there - which goes back to voting.

In an odd way, he’s right. Obama DID “reinvigorate and galvanise the country” by awaking the slient conservative majority.
Jay-Z is so ignorant that he wears Che’ t-shirts and doesn’t realize that Che’ hated blacks. Also, have heard that the “Jay” stands for “Jehovah” - Arrogant and ignorant - what a dangerous combination.
Hey JayZ, or whatever your name is: STFU!
(Von Mises, Menger, Hayek, Tacitus, Plato, Justinian, Friedman, Buckley, JAY-Z, Machiavelli, Solzhenitsyn, etc...)
LOL Why does this celebtard think the BNP is dangerous? It’s only a party which is trying to save the British way of life, their culture, stop the out-of-control muslim immigration. Yeah, that’s dangerous. /sarc off
Obviously Jay-Z never heard of Acton.
Now if he would have said we all need Beyonce-like girlfriends, THAT, I could agree with!!
I hate these over self important egotistical Rappers....Jay-Z and P. Diddy are everpaid idiots...I wish they would collect their Millions and Shut Up! If Britian ever wants to put the final nail in it’s grave elect an British Obama...... I’m sure an illegal non British citizen who’s a closet Muslim would do wonderfull things to help turn London into Londinastan...
He needs to pull up his britches...
President Barack Obama has publicly acknowledged that he is a fan of Jay-Z, and, according to the “99 Problems” rapper, the President especially likes listening to The Blueprint 3 when he works out.
Federal Investigation to Probe Jay-Z Racino Venture
Jay-Zs relationship with NY Governor David Paterson is one of the points of interest in a federal investigation into AEGs multi-billion dollar deal for the Aqueduct Race Track racino.
The issue revolves around whether the bid selection process was unethical. Questions have arose following AEGs successful bid since they courted Jay-Z, a good friend of Gov. Paterson, several months before the racino selection was completed.
Last month, Governor Patterson awarded AEG (Aqueduct Entertainment Group) with the contract to upgrade the existing Aqueduct Race Track venue, the only one located within the New York City limits.
The new state of the art gaming site will boast 4,500 video slot machines.
AEG chairman Richard Mays first approached Jay-Z last September, following the rappers press conference with Gov.
In Russia assassinations happen, political especially, but the leaders who do make it to the top are usually skilled at protecting the interests of their country. All of them are cold, hard, disciplined killers which these idiot rappers aren’t.
Say Jay... why don’t you just wrap up the U.S. Obama and ship it over to the UK... and send Choppers Biden over as well as a 2-fer?
I swear, it's stories like this that make me feel like I'm living in the movie "Idiocracy" and the inmates are running the asylum.
JAY-Z is why idiots are idiots and not advice columnists, political pundits or university professors.
They’re occasionally entertaining, but not very bright!!!
Isn’t jay-Z the one that was wearing a Che Guevara t-shirt, not having a clue that Che was a racist? Honestly, who cares what this guy thinks?
Stardom in Acton, that's all they got.
Well, like most deluded useful idiots he thinks he put obama where he is and Obama does ntohing to dispell this delusion. I suppose JayZ thinks he has the ability to play with the world’s leaders as an equal, like Obama thinks he does.
It’s ambition and the desire to be a power player. The actual playesr though don’t go into entertainment.
This coming from the guy who had a party in London and they wouldn’t let “white” people in?
Did he actually do that?!
