Apparently President Obama and his favorite artist of 2015 hung out.
Buzzfeed recently hosted White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett on their podcast “Another Round,” and she revealed a recent guest the White House welcomed: Kendrick Lamar.
President Barack Obama has already publicized his appreciation for the Compton emcee, specifically calling out “How Much a Dollar Cost” as his favorite song of 2015. However, the POTUS also invited the rapper for a visit to DC. The rapper and politician sat down together in the Oval Office to discuss presumably gangsta shit, and apparently Kendrick was a bit nervous (and really, who wouldn’t be?). What did the President say to relax him?
“Can you believe we’re both sitting in this Oval Office?” It’s great to know that our Commander-in-Chief still has appreciation for how far they’ve both come.
It’s hard to imagine, but maybe hip hop is played more often than not in the in White House, as Jarrett also said she is a fan of Jay Z. No word on whether Jigga has received an invite to Pennsylvania Avenue yet.
