Jay-Z used to dominate

President of the United States Barack Obama has given an interview to Rolling Stone, in which he talked about international and local affairs, his time in the presidential hot seat and various other intellectually involved subjects. It’s a good interview, but none of that concerns us – we want to know what’s on his iPod (or other name brand MP3 player). Well?

It turns out, and this will come as no surprise to anyone, that yer man Obama has something of a cool old dude’s musical collection, and has even been dabbling in hip-hop thanks to his daughters. Careful there, granddad!|

‘My iPod now has about 2,000 songs, and it is a source of great pleasure to me,’ he said. ‘I am probably still more heavily weighted toward the music of my childhood than I am the new stuff. There's still a lot of Stevie Wonder, a lot of Bob Dylan, a lot of Rolling Stones, a lot of R&B, a lot of Miles Davis and John Coltrane. Those are the old standards.

‘Jay-Z used to be sort of what predominated, but now I've got a little Nas and a little Lil Wayne and some other stuff. But I would not claim to be an expert. (his daughters) Malia and Sasha are now getting old enough to where they start hipping me to things. Music is still a great source of joy and occasional solace in the midst of what can be some difficult days.’
