Someone Epically Mashed-Up Barack Obama's Speeches to the Tune of Kendrick Lamar's 'Alright'

For those of us who may need additional reassurance.

Published January 21, 2017

As clearly exemplified through social media, many of us are having a difficult time accepting that President Barack Obama's final term is now over.

While hip-hop continues to reflect on the legacy of the 44th president and his family alike, one superfan has put together a video sure to get us extra in our feelings this weekend.

An account on YouTube, aptly titled BaracksDubs, has cleverly ​tied together some of Obama's words to remind us one more time that "we gon' be alright."

The mash-up video happily making viral rounds online features snippets from a plethora of Obama's speeches over the past eight years, editing them together so it sounds as though he's rapping over Kendrick Lamar's celebrated and timeless anthem, "Alright."

Sometimes it's just nice to hear a little extra reassurance from the man who gave it his all during his presidency and is continuing to fight the good fight with us as a proud American citizen. Paired with "Alright," this video truly does hit the spot.

Check out the video of Barack Obama being dubbed over Kendrick Lamar's "Alright" below.
