Drake Posts Thank-You Letter from Obamas on his IG Story

"As A Canadian that calls America home for part of the year I will always carry your words."

Drake took to his Instagram Story where he posted a thank-you letter he received nearly three years ago from our forever President and First Lady.

What We Know:

  • Drake must’ve been rummaging around his house and looking at some of his prized possessions, because the “God’s Plan” rapper shared the letter with his IG followers earlier this week, along with other cherished photos.
  • Drake, who was once a child actor on the Canadian teen drama Degrassi: The Next Generation, has made it no secret that he is a huge Obama fan and in 2012, Drake told VH1 that he hopes to play Obama on the big screen one day. He made this declaration saying, “I hope somebody makes a movie about Obama’s life soon because I could play him. That’s the goal. 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.”
  • Following Obama’s farewell address in 2017, Drake shared an image that blended his face with Obama’s and wrote, “As a Canadian that calls America home for part of the year I will always carry your words and the memory of your time in office with me as inspiration. Big Up yaself O.”
  • Obama has also expressed his love for the Canadian rap/singer. He once was captured dancing to Drake’s “Hotline Bling” with Usher and Janelle Monae and he playfully teased the rapper before last year’s NBA Finals, about his courtside behavior.
