Jay Z couldn't get Hillary Clinton to the White House, but RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that the 46-year-old rap mogul hubby of superstar Beyonce is getting ready to run for his own political office!
As fans know, the rapper and his 32-year-old "Lemonade" singer wife openly support the Democratic party. Aside from Beyonce performing the National Anthem at President Obama's inauguration in 2012, both also performed at a last-minute rally for Clinton in Cleveland during this presidential campaign.
But after Clinton's recent defeat by President-elect Donald Trump, the insider said, "Jay Z is really considering running for political office in New York and Beyonce is 1000 percent supportive of her husband's decision."
"Beyonce and Jay Z became friends with Barack Obama and Michelle and they have always been close with the Clintons," said the source. "The Obamas and Clintons have told Jay Z on numerous occasions that he should get involved in politics."

"They told him that he would make a great leader," the source told RadarOnline.com. "Jay Z not only has star power, but he would have a ton of support from his fans, as well as from past administrations."
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, the father to four-year-old Blue Ivy, put his music career on hold last year so that his wife, Beyonce, could release the "Lemonade" album and go on a world tour.
Said the insider, "Beyonce told Jay Z that running for political office would be a really good next step for his career and she feels like it will also give him a sense of purpose."
