One thing about our forever President Barack Obama—he always surprises us. With so many biopic discussions, he gave one of the most famous rappers his stamp of approval to play him in the role.
President Obama appeared on an episode of Complex’s “360 With Speedy Morman,” and was asked a series of questions. The one that stood out the most was if he would give Drake his blessing to play him in a role. If you recall, back in 2010, Drake interviewed with Paper Magazine saying, ”I hope somebody makes a movie about President Obama’s life soon because I could play him. That’s the goal. I watch all the addresses. Any time I see him on TV, I don’t change the channel. I definitely pay attention and listen to the inflections of his voice. If you ask anyone who knows me, I’m pretty good at impressions.”
President Obama reluctantly responded, “I will say this: Drake seems to be able to do anything he wants. That is a talented, talented brother. So if the time comes and he’s ready? You know what, Drake has — more importantly, I think — my household’s stamp of approval. I suspect Malia and Sasha would be just fine with it.”
Now, Roommates, this would be really lit! One of President Obama’s most notable films is “Southside With You,” which was released in 2016. In that film, Parker Sawyers and Tika Sumpter starred as young Barack Obama and Michelle Robinson (Obama) and focused on the couple’s first date in 1989 in Chicago.
Roomies, do yall think Drake can pull off President Obama?
