Earlier this year, Kendrick Lamar visited the White House and spent some time in the Oval Office with President Barack Obama, who has mentioned that the Compton rapper's "How Much A Dollar Cost," was his favorite song of 2015. During a recent interview with Complex News, Lamar discussed the president's post-White House career and announced that he had challenged Obama to a game of one-on-one basketball at Compton's Gonzalez Park.

“From the conversations that we’ve had, I think he’s gonna be in the communities still, heavy," Lamar said of Obama's aspirations following his final term in the White House. "He will be there and be effective inside the urban community and communities around the world.”

He also said that Obama would surely be hitting the hoop court frequently: " He needs to work on his jump shot a little bit… 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 Gonzales Park in Compton.” Watch the full interview below.
