President Obama is getting to be more and more comfortable with his side position as the Capitol’s rap ambassador.

On Saturday night (April 27), the president hosted the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner, also known as the ‘nerd prom,’ and started off on rap references. As quickly as the traditional march ‘Hail to the Chief’ started up and the POTUS took the stage, the music switched over to DJ Khaled‘s ‘All We Do Is Win.’ Awesome.

President Obama went on to do a little bop at the podium and quipped, ”How do you like my new entrance music? Rush Limbaugh warned you about this.”

“Second term, baby. We’re changing things around a little bit.”

He went on to address Jay-Z and Beyonce‘s recent anniversary vacation in Cuba borrowing a line from the Brooklyn emcee to poke fun at the situation. ”Somethings are beyond my control,” he said. “For example, this controversy about Jay-Z going to Cuba. It’s unbelievable. I’ve got ninety-nine problems, and now Jay-Z’s one!”

“That’s another rap reference,” he added for the slower ones in the group.

After receiving word of the president’s nod, DJ Khaled posted a screenshot of CNN’s report of the event with the caption, “#sufferingfromsuccess Brand #wethebestmusic”
