President Obama Lists His Top Rappers
Now this is a presidential debate that people would love to see. Sadly, since Hillary Clinton just called Death Row a “fashion source” and the only rapper Donald Trump knows is probably Mac Miller, it seems President Obama wouldn’t have anyone to argue against. Maybe Bill Clinton? This is yet another reminder of how we may possibly never have as cool a president again.
Anyway, young Barry O called in to Sway In The Morning earlier today and listed off his favorite rappers. Here’s what he had to say:
I think the young guys, Kendrick and Chance, are doing amazing work. I love Drake. The girls love Drake, and he’s commercially just doing great and unbelievably talented. Jay Z is still the king. He’s got a track record. Same with Kanye. There’s a lot of talent out there, but when I look at who’s breaking new ground — Kendrick and Chance — those guys are doing just amazing work, and they’re wonderful young men. Chance I’ve known for years because his dad was my state director when I was a senator in Illinois. I first met Chance when he was eight years old. So we’ve been family for a while. And Kendrick, he’s blowing it up, he’s doing great.
There you have it. POTUS-approved spitters. There’s not much new in the above statement because Chance recently attended the White House State Dinner and is set to perform at the White House Christmas Tree Lighting concert, and Obama named “How Much A Dollar Cost” by Kendrick as his favorite song of 2015 and had the Compton MC perform at the White House this past summer. Jay still the king though? I’m sure some people’s ears perked up on that one.
Obama also picked the Warriors and Patriots to take home a ship in the NBA and NFL, respectively, talked about the importance of voting, the FLOTUS, Michelle Obama, ever running for office, gave advice to who he hopes will be his successor, Hillary Clinton, and addressed Justin Timberlake’s voting selfie. Check it all out below.
Obama will be missed as president, but it will also be exciting to see him relax and do some cool things post-presidency.
