Michelle Obama’s Rap Debut (Yes, Really): Hear Her Pro-College Song with Jay Pharoah

President Barack Obama may be a Kendrick Lamar supporter, but perhaps the GOAT MC is… his wife?

Michelle Obama has officially made her rap debut in the “Go To College” music video, starring Saturday Night Live regular Jay Pharoah and commissioned by College Humor. No, seriously, there’s a “FLOTUS on the track!” drop in here.

“South Side Chicago, we all know/We had to do overtime every night to make it tomorrow/And everyone could really make their dream true/Hey kid, listenin’ in Michigan, that could be you!” Obama raps. Pharoah drives the pro-education song, but we all know who the real star rhymer is here.

When you’re done basking in FLOTUS’ glory, check out 10 of our favorite mixtapes from the past 10 years. Maybe Michelle Obama will drop one in the next 10 years!
