President Obama was put on the Hip-hop hot seat on Friday afternoon. In a YouTube interview held earlier in the day (Feb. 15), Obama was asked who would win in a rap battle between Drake and Kendrick Lamar. The POTUS didn’t hesitate when it came time to give an answer.
“Gotta go with Kendrick,” said Obama when asked at the 27:20 mark. “I think Drake is an outstanding entertainer, but Kendrick, his lyrics… His last album [To Pimp a Butterfly] was outstanding. Best album, I think, last year.”
