Barack Obama Would Be Okay With Drake Playing Him In A Movie

CELEBRITY NEWS - Kevin Douglas Article


Drake is known for his mic work in the music business, but he did start off in the entertainment world as an actor on Degrassi.

How would everyone react if the rap star was to portray President Barack Obama? How about Drake playing the role of Obama who is on a media blitz to promote his new memoir A Promised Land by running. He recently spoke with Breakfast Club and also sat down with Complex’s 360 With Speedy Morman.

President Obama has spoken about a number of issues in the world, including racism, COVID-19, and, of course, everything that deals with his record-breaking new book. During his talk with Speedy Morman, Obama even touched on who would be best suited to play him in a future movie about his life, giving Drake his Presidential seal of approval.

“I will say this: Drake seems to be able to do anything he wants,” said Obama. “You know what, Drake has– more importantly, I think– my household’s stamp of approval. I suspect Malia and Sasha would be just fine with it.”
