Anyone else remember the days when a president respected the dignity of the office they held?

Via Politico:

President Barack Obama occasionally texts Jay-Z, according to the rapper.

“I’ve spoken to him on the phone and had texts from Obama. Of course,” Jay-Z told Hot97 in an interview this week.

Realizing he sounded a bit arrogant, the rapper added that keeping in touch with the president is “amazing.”

Asked what the two talk about, he said Obama is “very heavy into sports so a lot of his analogies end up in sports.”

As an example, he mentioned a message he got from the president last year.

“I don’t know if this is breaching national security,” Jay-Z said. “But when he was getting elected the second time, he was like, ‘Hey, you know, fourth quarter, just give me the ball,’ I said, ‘word’.”

Lyrics from Jay-Z’s new single:

Shepard Fairey they finally gave me some hope
Can’t believe they got a nigga to vote
Democrat, nope
I sold dope
