Watch Michelle Obama Crush It in Hilarious Rap Video

The first lady spits bars for college education.

We all know First Lady Michelle Obama has skills. In her time in the White House, she’s spearheaded programs aimed at supporting our military vets, keeping our kids healthy and making education available to kids around the world. But did you know she can spit bars like the best of them? Because of course she can.


The first lady appears in a hilarious new video for The new clip supports her Better Make Room campaign, which encourages teens to invest in a college education.

Jay Pharoah, of Saturday Night Live, co-stars and lays the groundwork for Mrs. Obama’s solo verse. Stepping up to a mic set up inside the White House, she raps with confidence, “Southside Chicago, we all know / We had to do overtime every night to make it tomorrow. / And everyone could really make their dream true / Hey, kid listenin' in Michigan, that could be you!"

As she raps, a vintage photo from her college graduation appears on screen to really drive it home. Then, during the chorus, she and Pharoah can be seen dancing on the White House lawn in celebration. So, the only thing left to ask is, when is that mixtape dropping?
Drake,’s time to start putting those calls in!
