President Barack Obama received a huge show of support from the hip-hop community when he was running for election, and Jay-Z has confirmed that the feeling is mutual.

The hip hop mogul, who dedicated his verse to Obama on Young Jeezy's 'My President,' revealed that the president has invited him to visit the White House on numerous occasions, in a recent interview with the BBC.

"I've been invited to the White House a couple of times," Jay said, though he admitted that he was forced to decline the invitations. "Hopefully we'll keep him in for eight years, so I'll have time to get there."

Jay also confirmed Obama's purported love for rap music, claiming that the president listens to his music while he works out. "Barack loves hip-hop," Jay said. "When I called him he was playing 'The Blueprint' in the gym."

While we're surprised that Jiggaman would turn down a trip the White House, it's nothing for us to say that Obama is easily the coolest president of all time.
