President Obama’s ‘Pop Off’ Moment Has Just Been Turned Into a Song
President Obama became a trending topic all across social media following a press conference at the G-20 summit in Antalya, Turkey, on Monday (Nov. 17). The Prez used the term "pop off" in response to critics who think the U.S. strategy against ISIS has been largely ineffective. Now his words have been turned into a song for your listening pleasure.
"If folks wanna pop off and have opinions about what they think they would do, present a specific plan,” he said. “I’m not interesting in posing.”
If you didn't have a clue, the phrase "pop off" is commonly used slang to refer when an argument or fight is about to take place. The internet went wild and praised President Obama for reminding folks that he’s POTUS and doesn’t take any nonsense from anyone.
"Did the Pres just say "If some ppl wanna #popoff..let em" ??lol! Go get em #potus! You know best!" wrote one fan on Twitter.
One creative guy actually created a song off Obama's quotable moment. JX Cannon's track, obviously titled "Pop Off," boasts a Miami bass beat and Gucci Mane’s “brrr” adlibs throughout. We don't know if the song will become a No. 1 dance hit but it does have a nice groove to it.
