President Barack Obama held his first second-term White House Correspondents’ Dinner this weekend. His speech was accompanied with some surprising pop-culture references, such as his new entrance music: DJ Khaled‘s “All I Do Is Win.” Regarding the controversy surrounding Jay-Z and Beyoncé‘s recent trip to Cuba, Obama commented (around the 4:19 mark),

“It’s unbelievable. I’ve got 99 problems and now Jay Z’s one.”

Further “name-drops” include Steven Spielberg and Daniel Day Lewis, who were in the audience, applauding their work on Lincoln, as well as a behind-the-scenes trailer for Spielberg’s new project, Obama, featuring Day Lewis as the president and Tracy Morgan as Joe Biden. Watch it all above.
