Back in October, a photo surfaced of Kendrick Lamar and his crew at the White House with no back story or details as to what the Compton MC did during his visit. That mystery is now solved though, as senior advisor Valerie Jarrett recently told Buzzfeed that the rapper actually met with President Barack Obama in the Oval Office. According to Jarrett, Kendrick was "a little nervous" during the meeting, so Obama broke the ice by saying, "Can you believe that we're both sitting in this Oval Office?"
This had to have been a surreal moment for Kendrick, who was actually in D.C. that week to perform at the Kennedy Center with the National Symphony Orchestra. Kendrick hasn't yet talked about his sit down with Obama, but he did show him some public love when he found out that Obama said that "How Much a Dollar Cost" was his favorite song of 2015. Maybe one day we'll get the full story of what the two icons discussed.
