President Obama Chooses Between Jay-Z & Kanye West

President Obama speaks on rappers Jay-Z & Kanye West.

President Barack Obama recently spoke to the Atlantic about both Jay-Z and Kanye West.

When asked to choose either Jay-Z or Kanye, Obama chose Jay-Z. Read the excerpts below.

"Kanye or Jay-Z?" The president smiles. "Jay-Z," he says, as if the answer should be obvious.

"Although I like Kanye," Obama continues, with an easy smile. "He’s a Chicago guy. Smart. He’s very talented." He is displaying his larger awareness of the question, looking relaxed, cerebral but friendly, alive to the moment, waiting for me to get to the heart of the matter.

"Even though you called him a jackass?," I ask."He is a jackass," Obama says, in his likable and perfectly balanced modern-professorial voice. "But he’s talented."
