2015 Hot 97 Summer Jam

We aren’t the only ones making year-end lists. The President and the First Lady are also marking down their official favorites of 2015, and Barack Obama’s top track of 2015 happened to be a hip-hop number — Kendrick Lamar‘s “How Much a Dollar Cost.”

TMZ photographer recently caught up with K-Dot as he was getting off a flight, and he asked Lamar how he feels about getting a cosign from the POTUS. “Man, that’s great, man,” replied Lamar, clearly in effort to get out of the airport as quickly as possible. That didn’t stop the paparazzi man, though, who proceeded to ask the TPAB rapper about the deeper meaning behind “How Much a Dollar Cost.”

“Do you feel that the policy with giving money to people on the street should be, like, to think of everyone like a test? Like everyone that you might run into might really be God?” asked the cameraman, to which K-Dot responded, “Help as many people as you can, man, if you want to live forever.”

That sh*t deep. As for lady Obama, she opted for a more accessible choice, Bruno Mars‘ “Uptown Funk.” Though she’s still got K-Dot’s approval — “that’s a good one.”
