If we needed another opportunity to showcase Hip Hop’s influence on society, look no further than arguably the most powerful man in the world. In an exclusive interview with People Magazine for their Campaign 2016 special feature, President Obama listed Kendrick Lamar’s “How Much a Dollar Cost.” Looks like the controversial album art had no weight in President Obama’s opinion of the body of work. Check out the song below.
Not a bad year for Kendrick which includes releasing arguably one of the best albums of 2015, a handful of GRAMMY nominations, and a nod from the leader of the free world. Kudos Kendrick. Kudos.
