WATCH: Barack Obama smoothly raps Eminem’s ‘Lose Yourself’

Barack Obama has often been perceived as the coolest president in America’s history and he never misses a chance to prove. From out-singing many talented artists in “jingle bell” to enjoying singing “sweet home Chicago” former US President Barack Obama has always kept his fans to their toes.

Recently, Barack Obama, extended his efforts to reach out to the youth of America and partnered with production company ATTN. Obama (59) announced that he will be reaching to younger audience with his new book A Promised Land. In an effort to make better connection with the younger audience, Barack Obama will be sharing major parts of his book in a five-part video series on Instagram.

While the world already considered him the coolest president, Barack Obama levelled up his coolness quotient by perfectly reciting the rap of Eminem’s ‘Lose Yourself’.

Along with the videos, Barack Obama will also be sharing Instagram Reels. Obama writes in his memoir A Promised Land that this song from Eminem pumped him up during the 2008 campaign trail.

”In my new book, A Promised Land, I share the story of what inspired me to pursue public service and the ups and downs in my first few years of my presidency, but I wanted to share some of the most important moments with you,” Obama said during the launch of this video series.

Having an ardent love towards music of every kind, former US president Barack Obama also shared “When I needed inspiration on the presidential campaign, I often turned to music”.
