The President has already voiced his support for Kendrick Lamar on several occasions: he named a song from To Pimp A Butterfly as his favorite track of the year, and Lamar recently paid a visit to the White House. In a new video that surfaced today, the President was asked to pick his favorite Star Wars movie, his favorite Star Wars character—"I gotta go with Han Solo; he's a little bit of a rebel"—and the winner of a hypothetical rap battle between Kendrick and Drake. "Gotta go with Kendrick. I'm just saying. I think Drake is an outstanding entertainer But Kendrick, his lyrics—his last album was outstanding. The best album, I think, of last year."
