Former President Barack Obama has given Drake his stamp of approval to play him in a future biopic. In fact, the Obama-Drake connection actually dates back to 2010 when the rapper stated:
“I hope somebody makes a movie about Obama’s life soon, because I could play him,” the rapper told Paper at the time. “I watch all the addresses. Anytime I see him on TV, I don’t change the channel, I definitely pay attention and listen to the inflections of his voice. If you ask anyone who knows me, I’m pretty good at impressions. Slowly but surely, I’m not in the study mode because nobody’s called me about anything, but I just pay attention so when the day comes I’m not scrambling to learn how to speak like him.”
Get ready Drake – the biopic could be coming sooner than you think!
