Moments after President Obama held is last State of the Union address, rapper Fabolous posted a lengthy message praising him. Fab noted that Obama not only embraces other culture, but was one of the only presidents to do so in the hip hop community. He writes:
People will go back & forth about what Obama has & hasn’t done for this country. But from what I know & saw, Obama embraced many cultures while in office. Hip Hop being one, which touches me because I’m a Hip Hop artist. Hip Hop use’ta be a political scapegoat, the black cat of America, the reason for everything wrong even while being the largest growing music & the corporate world getting rich off our style, jingles, & consumers. We watched Hip Hop become a universal language thru all its backlash & ridicule. And Obama was the 1st President to even take pictures with our favorite artist, invite them to the White House, even drop lines in his speeches. Maybe it’s really good marketing & campaigning but even so no one else was real enough to even try it! Salute Obama. Hip Hop gotta admire this guy forever. [by the way that’s Obama at 40/40, what President you know has been where u been]
He also posted photos of Obama with Beyonce, Kendrick Lamar and Kanye West.
