President Obama Is A Fan Of Rappers Chance, Jay Z & More

On Friday (October 28th), President Barack Obama revealed in an interview on SiriusXM’s “Sway in the Morning” show that his favorite rappers are Chance the Rapper, Kendrick Lamar, as well as the reigning “king” of rap, Jay Z.

“I think the young guys, Kendrick and Chance [the Rapper], are doing amazing work. I love Drake, and the girls love Drake, so he’s commercially just doing great, and [is] unbelievably talented,” said Obama.

POTUS continued to reveal that he and Chance have been “family for a while,” as the pair first met when the famous artist was 8-years-old in Chicago. “Chance, I’ve known for years ’cause his dad was my state director when I was a senator in Illinois.”

Obama then admitted that Jay Z is still considered to be “the king”. He said, “I mean he’s got a track record. Same with Kanye [West] so 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.”
