Listen to Jay Z on iHeartRadio

If Jay Z is ever welcomed into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, he wants President Obama to induct him. 

On a recent episode of HBO's "Real Time With Bill Maher," the rapper said President Obama would likely do the honors because he "owes" Jay a couple of favors. 

Jay also spoke seriously about solving crime in America's inner cities.  He says the problem isn't one police can solve because it stems from the widening gap between rich and poor.  Jay claims that "more jobs would be better than more police."  

Following Jay's appearance on Friday's "Real Time With Bill Maher," the visuals to his track "Picasso Baby" aired on HBO.  Titled "Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film," the video revolved around Jay's six-hour performance of the single at New York's Pace Gallery last month.
