Barack Me Amadeus


On the heels of Vibe's first-ever cover story on a politician, CNN has an interesting piece about Obama's relationship with the rap generation.

"I'm old school, so generally, generally, I'm more of a jazz guy, a Miles Davis, a John Coltrane guy, more of a Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder kind of guy," Obama said in the interview. "But having said that, I'm current enough that on my iPod I've got a little bit of Jay-Z. I've got a little Beyonce."

What, no love for L-Boogie? So, should we assume the inclusion of The Fugees in the "Favorite Music" section of the senator's Facebook page is the work of a low-level hip hop head on the campaign staff?
