It is no secret that President Barack Obama has been appreciating the hip-hop culture. He now has made another statement that will sure keep the media and the industry talking. In an interview for theatlantic.com prior to a pair of fundraisers, the President was asked which rapper he prefers from The Throne, Jay-Z or Kanye West. He replied:

“Jay-Z, although I like Kanye. He’s a Chicago guy. Smart. He’s very talented.”

The interviewer even went one step further and added the question: “Even though you called him a jackass?”, referring to the 2009 incident in which the President was caught on camera having some not so charming words for Yeezy after taking the spotlight from Taylor Swift at the MTV Video Music Awards. The President kept his cool and added with a wink, “He is a jackass, but he’s talented.”
