Lamar challenges Obama to a game of hoops, critiques his jump shot. President Barack Obama has made no secret of his admiration for Kendrick Lamar. They met earlier this year at the White House to film a PSA for Obama’s “Pay it Forward” initiative.
In a new interview with Complex filmed at Art Basel, Lamar spoke on what he wants Obama to do after his presidential term wraps up in January.
“I think he’s going to be in the community still, heavy,” Lamar said. “He may not be POTUS, but he will be there and be effective inside the urban community and communities around the world.”
He also challenged to a game of basketball in Compton: “He gotta work on his jump shot a little bit, get his left hand all the way right,” Lamar said. “I’ve been trying to bring him out, that’s why I’m throwing shots at him right now. I want him to come to Gonzalez Park, Enterprise Park in Compton.”
