Only in our dreams could we imagine what a rap battle between Kendrick Lamar and Drake would sound like. But if it was to actually happen outside of our psyche and in the real world, President Barack Obama already knows who he’ll choose as the victor.
During a sit-down with YouTube game-changer Adande Thorne, he posed the question to the leader of the free world. And his response?
“Gotta go with Kendrick,” he simply said. “I think Drake is an outstanding entertainer, but Kendrick — his lyrics, his last album was outstanding. Best album, I think, of last year.”
Obama has praised K. Dot’s recent works like his critically-acclaimed album To Pimp A Butterfly and deemed the Compton native’s “How Much A Dollar Cost” as his favorite song of 2015.
Obama sure knows his stuff. Lol

He also had a historic meeting with Kendrick when the TDE member arrived at the White House to discuss the importance of mentorship and guiding the youth who live in disadvantaged communities.
Do you think Obama will change his mind once Drizzy releases his highly-anticipated album, Views From The 6? Only time will tell. In the meantime, check out the statement (at the 27-minute mark) below.
