president obama and sway

Sorry Jay-Z but President Obama favourite artist might be Bob Marley.

During an interview with MTV’s Sway Calloway, Obama discussed music where he pointed out that the reggae legend raised his awareness.

“You just mention Bob Marley,” the President said. “I remember in college listening, and not agreeing with his whole philosophy necessarily, but raising my awareness of how people outside of our country were thinking about the struggle for jobs and dignity and freedom.”

The President was discussing music and culture during a special interview with MTV at the White House.
