President Obama Says Kanye Still A “Jackass”


(AllHipHop News) President Barack Obama recently shared his opinion on his taste in Hip-Hop music and had some unflattering words for Kanye West.

President Obama was attending a fundraiser at Daniel, an upscale gourmet restaurant on Park Ave. in Manhattan, when a reporter for The Atlantic quizzed him on his Hip-Hop tastes.

According to President Obama, he prefers Jay-Z over Kanye West, “although I like Kanye,” Obama told The Atlantic. “He’s a Chicago guy. Smart. He’s very talented.”

But President Obama refused to backdown from comments he made about Kanye in 2009, while his microphone was live during an interview, without his knowledge.

In the new interview, The Commander-In-Chief has once again branded the Kanye West a jackass.

“He is a jackass,” Obama said in a new interview. “But he’s talented.”

President Obama also labeled the Grammy Award-winning producer/rapper a jackass in 2009, after he infamously interrupted Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.
