President Barack Obama’s Summer 16’ has been a busy one. He granted clemency to 214 prison inmates who were mostly locked up on drug-related offenses and then there is his daughter Malia, who is off away at Lollapalooza puffing joints.
The calm, cool and collected president seems like he can handle just about anything in his busy schedule, even taking time to showcase that his musical playlist to the world, just in time for relaxed weekend vibes. Thanks, POTUS!
Been waiting to drop this: summer playlist, the encore. What's everybody listening to? pic.twitter.com/mqh1YVrycj— President Obama (@POTUS) August 11, 2016
The day and night playlist just shows how the president gets down from morning until he’s ready to sleep.
His daytime playlist includes a mix of R&B, hip hop and soulful tunes with rapper Wale opening up the list all the way to Nas & Damian Marley’s “As We Enter”. While on the other end while the sun goes down the president starts with a soulful late night vibe that includes his hometown artist, Chance the Rapper, with “Acid Rain” with his even tweeting after the playlist was released.
I'm honored that our President would include in his summer playlist BUT THE FACT THAT HE PICKED ACID RAIN 😳😳😭😭💯💯⛽️🅰🆖 https://t.co/M2ypVhCQFA— Lil Chano From 79th (@chancetherapper) August 11, 2016
The president playlist isn’t one to dismiss especially with the slew of young new artist that he endorses. So just like Malia it’s time to light up and listen to the president’s playlist.
