Jesse Jackson -- It's Not A Wrap On Daughter Rapping ... Yet (VIDEO)

EXCLUSIVE

Rev. Jesse Jackson is backing off any plans to shut down his little girl’s rap star dreams -- just as long as she keeps her nose in the books too.

Jesse’s 16-year-old daughter, Ashley Jackson was on TMZ Live Wednesday and let us in on her father’s major concern -- politics and music are like oil and water to him.

As we reported, the rev's initial reaction was to put the kibosh on AJ's career in hip-hop, but watch this kid ... easy to see how she charmed Dad to get her way.
