Rounding up Barack Obama and family’s most hip hop moments.
President Obama recently made headlines when he announced that his favorite song from the year was Kendrick Lamar‘s “How Much A Dollar Cost?” If there’s one year-end list you want to be on, it’s the President’s. Our current commander-in-chief, and his family, have been the most culturally-savvy first family that this country has ever had, and a big portion of that is how their names continuously pop up next to hip hop culture.
Malia Obama was photographed wearing a Pro Era t-shirt, Michelle has used the culture in her philanthropic ventures, and the President himself is always making headlines, whether he’s shouting out Young Jeezy or brushing his shoulders off.
In the spirit of the recent headlines, and moving into Obama’s last year as President, we’ve decided to compile the Obama’s most hip hop moments during Barack’s presidency.
