An interview with AllHipHop.com has revealed what we long suspected about the aspirations of singer, reality star, Kardashian sex tape-maker, and Brandi-brother Ray-J: "I'ma be the mayor of Carson."

AllHipHop.com: Last time I saw you was at a mansion party and political rally for Kevin Powell. It was you, Brandy and Steve Rifkind. Do you have any aspirations outside of music and TV that you may want to do, like and community based functions? Ray J: I'ma be the mayor of Carson. The mayor of Carson, California. Not now. I still got a lot of learning to do. Focusing and a lot of reaching back out to the community, and paying my dues. But in the future coming around the stretch you know, I do see myself doing stuff like that.


He went on to explain that he was raised in Carson and sees a struggling community that he wants to help by encouraging kids to aspire to be mayors and doctors and lawyers. He continued by saying "the music industry has got alotta people clouded. And they think that's the only way to go. Or to put out a sex tape to be successful. That s**t is wack."
