Barack Obama may be leaving the White House, but he can now add Drake to his list of supporters. The rapper chose a surprising way to honor Obama after the President’s farewell address, with a really creepy Instagram post.
Drake is an interesting person, known to be an Obama sympathizer, the 30-year-old rapper posted a photoshopped picture that mixes his face with the president’s, resulting in Obama with Drake’s hair and jawline.
The singer’s way of showing some love may appear strange, because Drake is actually Canadian. However, J.Lo’s new sweetheart spends most of his time in America so it’s basically his home now. And it looks like Obama’s actions as the President inspired Drake’s respect for him, so the rapper will always see him as an icon, an inspiration.
When Hollywood is going to make a biographical movie about Obama, Drake wants the main role, that’s how much he idolizes the President! In 2012, Barrack Obama won his second seat at the White House and Drake acted a bit nuts, saying that he listens to Obama every time the 55-year-old politician appears on TV. Well, we all know that Obama is a big hip-hop lover, so it’s no surprise that the two bonded so much.
Still, their “relationship” suffered a big blow last year, when Obama said that Drake would lose a rap battle against Kendrick Lamar. The President added that Lamar’s lyrics are sensational and despite Drake being a good rapper, there wouldn’t be too much competition in such a battle. Ouchh! That surely made Drake reconsider his list of mentors. Even more, Drizzy responded in one of his songs, Summer Sixteen, where he says “Tell Obama that my verses are just like the whips that he in / They bulletproof.”
Lately, Drake’s songs are getting better so we assume that Obama’s words got to the rapper’s heart, but in a good way. Mic drop.
