Off-Court Trash Talk: Kendrick Lamar Jokes That POTUS Needs To Work On His Jump Shot
Simone Joyner

As President Obama’s tenure comes to an end, many are wondering what POTUS has planned after leaving office.

Obama has expressed interest in owning a basketball team and a few days ago, rumors circulated that he might dabble in media––although, those reports have since been denied.

While his plans for life after office are unknown, if he ever has too much free time, Kendrick Lamar will be around for a friendly game of basketball.

The rapper spoke to Complex about POTUS and his skills on the court. He said that even though Obama won’t be running the country, he believes he is “going to be in the community still.”

“He will be there and be effective inside the urban community and communities around the world,” Lamar said. 

The “Alright” emcee then challenged Obama to a friendly game on the court, hoping that POTUS will join him in Compton to shoot hoops. Lamar also fired off a shot, saying Obama needs to work on his jump shot.

“He’s been playing a little basketball, needs to work on his jump shot a little bit, get his left hand all the way right,” he joked. “I’ve been trying to bring him out that’s why I’m throwing shots at him right now.”
