Obama Laughs Off Cuba Controversy: ‘Got 99 Problems And Jay-Z Is Now One’
President Barack Obama kicked off his speech at the White House Correspondents’ dinner on Saturday (April 27) with DJ Khaled‘s “All I Do Is Win” as his introductory music.
“How do you like my new entrance music,” he said. “My advisors were a little worried about the new rap entrance music.”
The rap references didn’t stop at Khaled’s theme music. He went on to speak on Jay-Z’s trip to Cuba with a jab at Bill O’ Reilly, the Fox News host who regularly takes on rappers and the content of hip-hop music.
“Some things are beyond my control,” President Obama said. “For example, this whole controversy about Jay-Z going to Cuba. It’s unbelievable. I got 99 problems and now Jay-Z is one. That’s another rap reference Bill O’ Reilly.”
