Comedian Hannibal Buress was tasked with one question for the 2016 presidential election: Who would the candidates be if they were rappers?

Fusion's F*Comedy recruited the Comedy Central staple to compare current (and could-have-been) candidates to hip-hop's finest, and as expected, the results are worth a hundred crying emojis.

"Hillary Clinton would be Diddy, because she's done some stuff that people like, that some people hate," Buress said in his signature deadpan delivery. "She's super rich and got famous for attaching herself to one of the all-time greats." Split-screen images of Hillary with Bill Clinton and Diddy with Notorious B.I.G. then appear.

Buress continues, “Joe Biden would be Iggy Azalea, because people were expecting a big tour and it never happened.”
