A president should be smart, well-spoken and know how to kick some ass. Sound like anyone you know? Here are 6 rappers who should be president.

RZA

“If you live through defeat, you’re not defeated. If you are beaten but acquire wisdom you have won. Lose yourself to improve yourself. Only when we shed all self-definition do we find who we really are.”

These words were spoken by Robert Fitzgerald Diggs, born in 1969. He later became RZA. Let me do the math for you. He’s over the required 35 years old and should be the next president because no other candidate has the combination of wisdom, verbal mastery and bad assery of RZA. This philosophical verbal kung fu aficionado has even sprinkled in a bit of flip-flopping into his mystique by saying that black people should dress better if they don’t want to be harassed by the cops. Maybe he’d even get some of the conservative vote, hmmm?

 

KRS-One

“You don’t see with your eyes, you see with your brain and the more words your brain has the more things you can see.”

KRS-One and his word wizardry probably sees life better than anyone. This dude, hands down, has more knowledge and understanding about the realities of life and politics than all the Republican candidates combined. He will school you, he will debate you and educate you. He truly deserves to bring his experience to the table and stop the violence.

 

Eminem

If after all the controversial shit that Donald Trump has said, he still has a chance of getting elected, why not Eminem? The only person that could rival Donald Trump’s over-the-top buffoonery would be this guy from the wrong side of the tracks in Detroit. Oh, you got jokes, Donald Trump? You got one-liners? Step back and watch this verbal master rip you to shreds on a national stage. Will the real Slim Shady please stand up?

 

Lauryn Hill

Americans are sick of politicians because they’re sick of bullshit. Lauryn Hill is 100% genuine and would have a real chance of winning if she’d turn her talent toward getting into the oval office. “Reality is easy,” she says. “It’s deception that’s the hard work.” If America in 2016 is ready for the truth, it’s ready for Lauryn Hill. Plus, with that fro in the above pic she resembles the 1960s political activist Angela Davis. What more reason do you need?

 

Snoop Dog

The truth is, America just needs to chill out. Who better to lead this crusade than a man who knows what that’s all about. The smoothest, chillest, calmest gangster slash family man slash Rastafarian of all time: Snoop Dog. America doesn’t need more wars. It doesn’t need more land. More resources. America needs to sit back and smoke a J. Now that’s change you can believe in.

 

50 Cent

If peace doesn’t work, a president should be prepared to kick some ass. Sometimes what you really need is a badass motherfucker in the White House. Who better to carry on the imperial tradition than a dude who knows how to “stack chips and unload clips.” Just ask Obama. Or George W. Bush. Or his dad. Or Bill Clinton. Or virtually every other president in the history of The United States. When you’re president, you got a lot of haters and you need to be able to send them six feet under if they don’t reckonize. In this case, 50 Cent is your man. That’s right. The guy who got shot 9 times and lives with a bullet lodged underneath his tongue. Beat that Teddy Roosevelt.
