VIDEO: Watch a 15-year-old rap for Barack Obama
Time and time again, President Barack Obama has proven to be the world’s coolest and dorkiest dad.
He proved this one again when he told a 15-year-old rapper in South Africa he needs to “drop the mic.”
Obama visited Desmond Tutu HIV Foundation Youth Centre in Cape Town, South Africa. While there, he was treated to a rap performance by a young aspiring rapper.
Aviwe Mtongana proved his rapping skills with a song titled “Hell on Earth,” according to a White House pool report.
When Mtongana was done with his performance, Obama said “You gotta drop the mic!” The young man doesn’t only have fantastic rapping skills, he’s got amazing confidence given he’s rapping to the leader of the free world.
Watch the rap in the CBS News video above. The singing begins around the 1:30 mark.
