The Internet suddenly has a new reason to say “Thanks, Obama!”
On Thursday night, Jay Z skipped the 48th Annual Songwriters Hall Of Fame Induction and Awards Gala in New York City, possibly to be there for the birth of his twins.
The 47-year old music was scheduled to be the first-ever rapper to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
Instead of attending, however, he shared 13 Tweets to his fans, thanking his mentors and expressing his gratitude overall.
“Thank you to all the people that have inspired me,” he wrote, mentioning such stars as Nas, Busta Rhymes, Ice T, 50 Cent and Lauryn Hill on social media.
He later added:
“Somebody find that reply I just hit please. I’m new on this. Anyway salute to anybody who made a song to feed their family or just vent.”
No, Jay Z eventually joked online, he was not “drunk.”
But the rambling messages the rapper sent were quickly forgotten about after ex-President Barack Obama shared a two-minute video he created in honor of the legendary artist.
“I’d like to think Mr. Carter and I understand each other,” Obama said.
“Nobody who met us as younger men would have expected us to be where we are today. And so we try to prop open those doors of opportunities, so that it’s a little easier for those who come up behind us to succeed as well.
“I’m pretty sure I’m still the only president to listen to Jay-Z’s music in the Oval Office. That may change at some point, but I’m pretty sure that’s true now.”
And this is when Obama shifted gears and left many thinking that Beyonce really has already given birth.
“Jay and I are also fools for our daughters, although he’s gonna have me beat once those two twins show up,” he said.
It certainly sounds as if the former Commander-in-Chief knows something we don’t know, doesn’t it?
Maybe Beyonce hasn’t had the twins yet. But daughters? Plural?!?
Based on this snippet of Obama’s message, it’s safe to Blue Ivy is about to get a pair of sisters. How exciting!
