Barack Obama is a Jay-Z Fan!

Jay-Z tells British host Jonathan Ross that he has a fan in the Oval Office!

The rapper, who supported Obama during the presidential campaign, says he’s been invited to the White House “a couple of times” but has been busy with touring, adding, “Hopefully we’ll keep him in for eight years, so I’ll have eight years to get there.”

Jay shared that when he’d called the president, Obama was playing his album, The Blueprint, in the gym!

As for whether he’d ever heard Obama freestyle rap, Jay laughed and replied, “No, I don’t want him to do that.”

He was funny there but damn why is he so self-centered? It’s all about himself! But i still like him and he’s hilarious in a weird way.
