Top Dawg Entertainment‘s Kendrick Lamar recently shared his thoughts on President Barack Obama‘s historic eight-year presidential run. K. Dot reflected on why the world should appreciate Obama’s contributions as head of state.

In Kendrick’s perspective, President Obama practically rolled out the red carpet for hip-hop to experience the White House.

“I think the world, not just hip-hop owes him. We all have to give him his credit due for even allowing us into the building. We would probably never get inside that house ever again. Think about it like that. Rick Ross, Cole, Nicki Minaj, he really went for us to come experience it. This is something our grandparents always wanted to see, never thought in a million years, but [we can] pass it down to our generation to say, ‘Alright, I’m in here and I’m finna use my power to let ya’ll see how this thing works and I’mma drop some knowledge on y’all that a man can’t drop on everybody else ’cause y’all have the most influence.’” (XXL Mag)

Recently, Lamar playfully talked about wanting to face-off against President Obama in basketball.

“He gotta work on his jump shot a little bit, get his left hand all the way right. I’ve been trying to bring him out, that’s why I’m throwing shots at him right now. I want him to come to Gonzalez Park, Enterprise Park in Compton.” (Complex)

  1. He didnt do or mean anything to me..as a black male i was like ok ..cool but then when you consider that he is not fully black and that he did nothing for blacks it was pointless..
    Never would i want a hand out that i didnt deserve…what pissed me off was the lack of support and him being unwilling to be a voice..
