In a new interview with People, President Obama said Kendrick Lamar’s “How Much a Dollar Cost”—from this year’s To Pimp a Butterfly—was his favorite song of 2015. Meanwhile, First Lady Michelle Obama’s favorite song was Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk”.
If there was any doubt Obama was an awesomely cool president, let it be immediately dispelled.
This also means the President probably heard Kendrick’s explicit shout out on “Hood Politics”, also from TPAB.
No wonder Kendrick has 11 grammy nominations.
