On Friday (Jan. 20), Barack Obama will vacate The White House after serving eight years as the President of the United States. Because of his admiration for the hip-hop culture, he has gained a multitude of supporters, most notably, Kendrick Lamar.
The Compton rapper sent his well wishes to Obama on Twitter. "@potus We really gonna miss you champ. The good you've done & opportunity's you've given. Truly never know what we got til its gone. Thank u," he tweeted.
Lamar and Obama have built a strong friendship over the last few years. Last year, Obama said he preferred Lamar over Drake during an interview with YouTube sensation Adande Thorne. "Gotta go with Kendrick," Obama answered. "I think Drake is an outstanding entertainer, Kendrick… his lyrics, his last album, was outstanding. Best album, I think, of last year." Lamar also visited The White House and spent some quality time with the 44th President of the United States last year.
