Asked by Morman if Drake has his “stamp of approval,” Obama said, “Drake has, more importantly, I think, my household’s stamp of approval. I suspect Malia and Sasha would be just fine with it.” Barack Obama didn’t actually say it was “God’s Plan” to have Drake depict him in a biopic.
Yet, he gave it his blessing.
The previous president, in meeting on Complex’s 360 With Speedy Morman, said he wouldn’t see any problems if Drake got the part in any future component. “I will say this, Drake seems to be able to do anything he wants. I mean, that is a talented, talented brother. So, if the time comes and he’s ready…”
Drake wouldn’t be the first to depict Obama. He’s as of now spoken to by Kingsley Ben-Adir on The Comey Rule through Showtime. Parker Sawyers likewise depicted the previous U.S. President in Richard Tanne’s Southside with You.
The Obama-Drake association dates to 2010.
“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.”
