President Barack Obama has never been one to distance himself from his love of hip-hop and at the White House correspondents’ dinner he proved it once again. In a room filled with stars from the worlds of politics and entertainment, Obama joked that while he was singing Al Green during his first term, if he gets elected to a second he’ll be blastin’ rapper Young Jeezy.
He then turned to the first lady and jokingly said “I sing that to her sometimes.” While that joke may have been over a good portion of the older crowd’s heads, it did make waves on social media and Twitter.
WATCH THE PRESIDENT SHOUT OUT YOUNG JEEZY:
While Young Jeezy wasn’t in attendance to hear the acknowledgment live, he did respond through via Twitter account saying, “Shout out to @BarackObama.” The “Trap or Die” rapper then followed that tweet up by saying “You know they love the snowman in the white house #Turntup.”
