Barack Obama has to be the coolest President. The American leader is currently on the cover of hip US magazine Rolling Stone and inside reveals he listens to Lil Wayne and Nas on his iPod. We all knew Obama was a Jay-Z fan, but it seems the commander-in-chief is a fan of hip-hop in general.

When asked what music he’d been listening to lately, that speaks to him, he answered: “Thanks to Reggie [Love, the president’s personal aide], my rap palate has greatly improved,” he explained. “Jay-Z used to be sort of what predominated, but now I’ve got a little Nas and a little Lil Wayne and some other stuff, but I would not claim to be an expert.”

The President went on to say his two young daughters keep him hip, with regards to music: “Malia and Sasha are now getting old enough to where they start hipping me to things. Music is still a great source of joy and occasional solace in the midst of what can be some difficult days.”

Maybe when Obama visits the UK he can listen to some grime…
