The 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama, sat down for an hour-long talk with Speedy at the iconic Ben’s Chili Bowl in Washington, DC while discussing his new memoir ‘A Promised Land.’ We connected on everything from his own experiences with racism, defunding the police, the Covid-19 vaccine and whether or not Donald Trump did anything right during his presidency. We also have a conversation about his comments on hip-hop in last week’s interview with ‘The Atlantic.’ Finally, President Obama pondered whether LeBron will ever reach Michael Jordan’s GOAT status and if he thought Drake was the right man to play him in a movie.
