Anderson .Paak Gets A Major Shoutout From Former President Barack Obama

The former president said his daughters Sasha and Malia are the biggest fans in the Obama household.

Getting recognized by former President Barack Obama is a huge accomplishment. Obama keeps his ears tuned into what’s hot in the music industry, and it shows through the music playlist he always curates at the end of every year. One rapper, in particular, who shows up on those playlists is Anderson .Paak.

The Oxnard native recently had the Rick Ross-assisted “Cut Em In” land a spot on Obama’s Favorite Music of 2020 playlist, but he got an even bigger look when the former president shouted him out in a clip shared on social media..centered-ad {

});

On Tuesday (January 13), Anderson posted a video on his Instagram of Obama telling him how big of a fan he is in the middle of taking a quick breather from a game of golf with his buddy Kelly Slater.

“Anderson, Kelly tells me you’re a friend,” Obama said. “I love your work man, but more importantly, Millie and Sasha love it. So, big Anderson .Paak fans in the Obama household. Take care, man.”

Showing his excitement, Anderson wrote in the caption of the video, “No bad for a Tuesday @kellyslater @barackobama.”

It’s not every day a rapper will get a shoutout like that from Obama. Anderson is now in the rare company of artists who are friends with the former president. That list isn’t that big either, with only JAY-Z, Beyoncé and Chance The Rapper being in it.
