President Obama Prefers Kendrick to Drake, Disappointing Millions of Non-Voters in Canada

Barack Obama, already a known Kendrick Lamar fan, has doubled down on his fandom by declaring his favoritism for the Compton-born Kendrick Lamar over Canadian import, Drake. “Gotta go with Kendrick,” Obama said in a YouTube Q&A yesterday (around 17:00 in the video above) when asked which artist would win in a rap battle. “I think Drake is an outstanding entertainer. Kendrick … his lyrics, his last album was outstanding. Best album, I think, last year.” Obama is on the record for saying that “How Much a Dollar Cost” was his favorite song of last year (sorry, “Hotline Bling”) and even met with Lamar in the Oval Office earlier this month. In response to a separate question, Obama revealed that Han Solo was his favorite Star Wars character and A New Hope is his favorite Star Wars film. Hey, once he’s done with this whole leader of the free world thing, the President could probably freelance as a cultural critic. (Who needs a health plan when you have Obamacare?)
