First Lady Michelle Obama has added rapping to her impressive resumé of accomplishments.
Get ready to laugh as you watch her team up with CollegeHumor for a music video that encourages teens to go to college, despite obstacles and other plans. She raps alongside Saturday Night Live funny man Jay Pharaoh, who impersonates who else?
Both rap and dance on the White House lawn and in a recording studio. Pharaoh can be seen freestyling all over the grounds in one scene. In another, Michelle spits rhymes in stride alongside him.
The FLOTUS even has her own verse:
“South Side Chicago, we all know, we had to do overtime every night to make it tomorrow,” she rhymes as her graduation photo floats in the background. “And everyone could really make their dream true. Hey, kid listenin’ in Michigan, that could be you!”
A statement from the Office of the First Lady says the video is designed to support her Better Make Room public awareness campaign, which began last month as part of her Reach Higher initiative.
Better Make Room is working to inspire Generation Z, or young people ages 14-19, to excel in high school and college. The campaign hopes to celebrate student stories in the same way celebrities and athletes are celebrated.
