Jay-Z wants us to know that he text messages with President Obama on the reg.
He told New York radio station Hot97 on Wednesday what it’s like being buddies with POTUS: “I’ve spoken to him on the phone and had texts from Obama. Of course.” (OF COURSE.)
“[Obama's] a regular guy as well. He’s very heavy into sports so a lot of his analogies end up in sports,” the rapper continued.
When asked for an example of what they chat about, Jay-Z said, “I don’t know if this is breaching national security, but when he was getting elected the second time, he was like, ‘Hey, you know, off-courter, just give me the ball.’ I said, ‘Word.’”
Jay-Z and only Jay-Z can get away with saying “word” to the president.
The rapper and his wife Beyonce have been longtime Obama supporters and even hosted a $40,000 per plate fundraiser at Jay’s New York City nightclub for the president’s re-election last year.
