The Obamas Cranked Up J. Cole Track At Final White House Party
Among those at the event were Chance The Rapper, Usher, Wale, Solange, Robert De Niro, Dave Chappelle, Stevie Wonder, Meryl Streep, and Tom Hanks.
J. Cole’s manager and friend Ibrahim Hamad was there too, and he reported the Obamas rocked out to Cole’s track ‘Neighbors’ in the early hours of the morning.
I watched the Obama’s turning up to “Neighbors” at 3am while I was eating chicken & waffles and on henny in the WH. Still hasn’t sunk in.

‘Neighbors’ is off of of Cole’s most recent album 4 Your Eyez Only, which suggests Barack is up to date on his tunes.
It’s also an interesting pick because it tells the true story of J. Cole’s studio/house being raided for drugs.
