10. Meeting the President (Sort of)

Ok, so there's probably only one hip hop artist in recent memory who met the president and that's Jay Z. He also endorsed President Obama's campaigns. Eazy's connection to the White House is much different. The moment is commemorated on Game's song "Dreams," in which he spits, "Who walked through the White House without a business suit/Compton hat, Jheri curl drippin' on Ronald Reagan's shoes." However, technically it was George H.W. Bush's administration that invited Eazy and it was merely a luncheon. A pricey luncheon, but a luncheon nonetheless. So there you have it, Eazy-E was the original Black Republican.
