The hour-long primetime speech was strategic in its message. While several of Obama’s detractors question his stance on the terrorist groups Al Qaeda and ISIS. He made sure to address those naysayers. “The United States of America is the most powerful nation on Earth. Period. It’s not even close…If you doubt America’s commitment or mine that justice is done, ask Osama Bin Laden,” said the reassured president. 

Rather than boasting about all of his administration’s accomplishments President Obama challenged himself and Congress to continue to making noteworthy political and social strides. Throughout the discussion’s duration Hip-Hop used Twitter and chimed in with its thoughts.

Check out the included tweets from people like Charlamagne Tha God, Karen Civil and Wale. The D.C. native became the first MC to open up for a president’s State of the Union address.
