Rapper Jay-Z claims that he talks on the phone and exchanges text messages with President Barack Obama. He made the claim in an interview with Hot97.
“I’ve spoken to him on the phone and had texts from Obama. Of course,” Jay-Z reportedly said in the interview. “He’s a regular guy as well. He’s very heavy into sports so a lot of his analogies end up in sports.”
Asked for an example, Jay-Z continued: “I don’t know if this is breaching national security but when he was getting elected the second time, he was like, ‘Hey, you know, off-courter, just give me the ball,’ I said, ‘word’.”
