Nas, 2 Chainz, Drake and More React to President Obama’s Farewell Speech

Last night, President Obama gave his last speech in Chicago to end his presidency with a bang.

Hundreds of thousands of people gathered in McCormick Place to see him speak, and millions of viewers at home were able to embrace the moment from their television screens. The address was Obama’s last goodbye to the country as the leader of the free world, and he made sure to take the time to highlight his presidency highs, while also giving the country faith for what is to come with President-elect Donald Trump.

Before his speech took place, BJ The Chicago Kid sang the national anthem at the event, showing off his Grammy-nominated vocals for the packed crowd. While Obama took time during the speech to thank everyone on his team, including his wife Michelle, his two beautiful girls, Malia and Sasha, as well as Vice President Joe Biden, hip-hop took to social media to thank the President, himself.

From 2 Chainz to Drake, everyone made sure that POTUS went out in style, and with all of the thanks that he could get for the last 8 years.

While we’re not sure what’s ahead for the country and our next leader, at least we will always have the memories of the Obama family in the White House.

See some of the reactions from hip-hop artists below to Obama’s farewell address.
