He's got a good ear
There’s no doubt that President Barack Obama is a fan of hip-hop. He’s kept a consistent flow of hip-hop artists throughout the White House whether they were performing or just stopping by. He’s known for being pretty close to hip-hop’s royal duo Jay-Z and Beyoncé and knowing Chance the Rapper since he was just little Chancelor Johnathan Bennett.
A few months ago, Prez Obama called into SiriusXM’s Sway in the Morning. During the interview, Sway asked BO “Who are your top MCs today? Who are the top rappers in the game today, in your opinion?” President Obama then gave him the rundown on who he thinks is heading the game.
“Jay Z’s still the king,” he said.
