There's no question about it: President Barack Obama knows his hip-hop.
Even though Obama has said that rap music nowadays perpetuates misogyny and degradation that he doesn't want his daughters or children in general exposed to, the Commander-In-Chief can't help being a fan of a select few that touch the mic. He has given mention to the likes of Lil Wayne, Nas, Jay-Z, and most recently, Young Jeezy.
Saturday night at the annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner in Washington, the Snowman was blessed with a shout out.
Since Obama's 2012 Presidential re-election campaign is officially underway, it's only right that GlobalGrind comes up with a list of rap songs that should be on the First iPod.
Nas, Wayne, Jeezy, and Hov definitely make the cut, but there are some other rappers who could possibly receive a future shout out from the Prez too.
