Jay Z and Kendrick Lamar to Attend President Obama’s 55th Birthday Party
President Barack Obama turns 55 today (Aug. 4). Michelle is throwing him a birthday bash at the White House on Friday night, and the first lady decided to invite a few friends: Jay Z, Beyoncé and Kendrick Lamar are reportedly coming through.
Of course, Hov, Bey and K. Dot aren't White House novices. Kendrick was at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue exactly one month ago at Malia Obama's Fourth of July birthday celebration. Meanwhile Jay Z and Beyoncé have been on several occasions, as well, for events such as the annual Easter Egg Roll on the White House lawn.
It's well-documented that Obama is a big fan of both Jay and Kendrick. While on the campaign trail in 2012, Barry O told a Cleveland radio station that he kept Hov on repeat on his iPod. Around the same time, in an interview with Glamour Magazine, Obama said that he bonds with Malia over Hov and Nas songs.
