Obama Sings "Happy Birthday" To Usher
Usher has experienced a lot in his long career, to the point that he doesn't get star struck all that often.

Redman "Bud Like You (Remix)" Video
Redman has taken it upon himself to re-interpret Usher's single "Good Kisser" as "Bud Like You" which is all about his favorite substance, marijuana. It's actually pretty hilarious, he's basically serenading his weed while also calling out wack dealers, with lyrics like: "your dealer is a liar / because he don't never have the fire / he always talk reckless on the wire / my middle finger up to your supplier / I just wanna party I ain't tired / That sour diesel really gets you higher / Ah, I love marijuana, go and tell my mama I got the bud rolled up..."
