[Watch] #TownHallSoLit: President Obama Drops a Beat for Vietnamese Femcee

We'll never have a beatboxer-in-chief like this, ever again.

Published May 25, 2016

Barack Obama is without a doubt the coolest president of all time, and he's definitely got the most rhythm. If we ever needed any more convincing, a video was released of Obama's recent visit to Vietnam, he offered to beat box with a Vietnamese rapper, 26-year-old Hàng Lâm Trang Anh, who goes by the name Suboi.

This is just another example of our president showing the world just how cool he really is.

Obama speaks to Suboi from the stage saying, "Before I answer your question why don't you give me a little rap? Let's see what you've got," as the crowd cheers in support. "Do you need like a little beat?"

She then performs a bar for Obama, which he clearly enjoys.

The two then get into a truly candid conversation where Suboi lamented the lack of women in the Vietnamese rap scene, with Obama adding that the States share similar, sexist tendencies.

Obama's candor, and interest in the young woman’s music and message, is just another sign that Obama is one of the most likeable presidents we've had in decades. His humor and smile will surely be missed when it is time for him to leave the Oval Office.
