Back in October, a photo surfaced of Kendrick Lamar and his crew at the White House with no back story or details as to what the Compton MC did during his visit. That mystery is now solved though, as senior advisor Valerie Jarrett recently told Buzzfeed that the rapper actually met with President Barack Obama in the Oval Office. According to Jarrett, Kendrick was “a little nervous” during the meeting, so Obama broke the ice by saying, “Can you believe that we’re both sitting in this Oval Office?”
Kendrick released a short teaser video of his sit-down with President Obama on Vimeo. He discusses the need for role models in urban communities and shares some brief pictures of President Obama and him. You can watch the clip below.
