In a recent interview President Obama was asked his favorite rappers and although he gives credit to many newcomers he claims Jay-Z is still the King. Can’t argue much with that.
Obama stated “I think the young guys, Kendrick and Chance, are doing amazing work. I love Drake and the girls love Drake, so he’s just commercially doing great, and unbelievably talented” but he added, “Jay Zs still the king. he’s got a track record. Same with Kanye, so theres a lot of talent out there, but when I look at who’s breaking new ground, Kendrick and Chance, those guys are doing amazing work.”
You’ve got a great list there Mr. President.
He also stated in the interview that he’s family friends with Chance and has known him since he was knee-high to a mic stand. Aw.
