I know our future looks bleak, but we need to enjoy Barack Obama as our president while we still can.
President Obama has been one hell of a Commander in Chief, I think we can all agree to that (four more years?). He inherited one of the worst recessions our country has seen and got us out of it, he created millions of jobs within his first term, eighteen million Americans now have health insurance, we have less military in war zones than we did twelve years ago, and of course gay marriage was legalized.
Aside from his successes he has been one of the coolest Presidents too, having some close friends in the music industry, like Beyoncé and Jay-Z, and having some stellar music taste (he enjoys Courtney Barnett, Janelle Monáe, and Prince).
So in order to celebrate this amazing President while we still can, here is a playlist of songs about our beloved Obama.
- Young Jeezy feat. Nas – “My President”
- will.i.am – “Yes We Can”
- Joel Ortiz – “Letter to Obama” (Feat. Dante Hawkins)
- Ti$a – “Vote Obama”
- Nas-“Black President”
- Jadakiss feat. Common, Styles P & Nas – ‘Why (Remix)
- Common-“The People”
