    In an interview on SiriusXM’s “Sway in the Morning” show, President Barack Obama named Chance the Rapper and Kendrick Lamar as two of his favorite rappers, but stressed that Jay Z is still the undisputed “king” of the genre. “I think the young guys, Kendrick and Chance, are doing amazing work.

    Isn't MSNBC the most off-the-hinges left wing whack job bastardized substitution for journalism in existence? Isn't it the home of the inventive and mostly imaginative and seldom true ramblings of Rachel Maddow and Keith Olbermann where venting against all things Christian or Conservative are demonized and the only acceptable form of worship IS Obama as Messiah? So how on earth will MSNBC explain that at 3pm EST on Wednesday, MSNBC web traffickers are FLUNKING "President Jebus" by 60%?
