From many rappers being invited to the White House, to the First Lady dropping a music video encouraging kids to stay in school. The Obama administration has confirmed it allegiance to Hip-Hop culture. Recently the Head Of State had a local Vietnamese female emcee showcase her skills. Allhiphop.com reports:

You start realizing somebody else’s pain or somebody else’s hopes. And you start realizing we have more in common.”
