The President is a rap fan.

President Barack Obama has revealed that he is a huge fan of J. Cole.

The US President gave a speech at this year’s ‘South By Southwest’ festival in Texas, before heading to a fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee, where Cole was performing. 

“I love J. Cole. You know, this is the benefit of having teenage daughters,” said Obama. 

“I actually keep up. I got a chance to see J. Cole’s mum and grandma.”

This isn’t the first time the US President has co-signed a rapper, after he claimed that Kendrick Lamar would beat Drake in a rap battle last year.

Meanwhile, J. Cole has been announced as a headliner for this year's Wireless Festival.

The rapper will hit the stage alongside acts such as Boy Better Know, Future, Bryson Tiller and more.
