macklemore-obama-1

Macklemore paid a visit to The White House on Thursday (May. 12), sitting down with President Barack Obama for a candid conversation on opioid abuse in the United States. The Grammy Award-winning rapper joined the POTUS in his weekly address released this weekend, bringing awareness to the epidemic and offering solutions such as working with local law enforcement and citing a provision in Obamacare that requires health care coverage include treatment.

I’m here with President Obama because I take this personally,” says Macklemore during the address. “I abused prescription drugs and battled addiction. If I hadn’t gotten the help I needed when I needed it, I might not be here today.”

The PSA comes months after the Obama administration proposed $1.1 billion to be put aside for “new mandatory funding over two years to expand access to treatment for prescription drug abuse and heroin use.” Macklemore’s sit down with Obama is a part of a one-hour documentary set to air this summer on MTV.

The two have butted heads in the past, most notably when Trump threatened to sue Mac for using his name in said song, despite previously praising the record and calling him “the new Eminem” (ugh). Then, in December 2015, Mac tweeted, “Just please don’t elect this motherfucker man.”

Welp. That was convenient. The family that ☝️together, stays together. And of course, Kris Jenner would see the bigger (business) picture that it’s better for these two social-media stars to collaborate than clash. Imagine the ratings and clicks?
