Donald Trump was officially inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States today, and with that said, it ends Barack Obama’s reign in The White House. Moments leading up to the inauguration, many folks within the music community took to social media to say their farewells to Obama and thank him for the last eight years. “We really gonna miss you champ. The good you’ve done & opportunity’s you’ve given. Truly never know what we got til its gone. Thank u” Kendrick Lamar tweeted. Rihanna meanwhile, praised Obama by posting a picture of the 44th President with a caption reading “worst breakup ever.” More artists will likely share their thoughts throughout the day, but you can check out the most recent ones below.
