President Obama's farewell address to the nation Tuesday night had people all up in their feelings—even rap stars.
Not long after the speech's conclusion, Drake took to Instagram to post a thank-you message to POTUS. "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," he said. "Big up yaself O." And the photo attached to that sincere, if somewhat confusing, message? A mashup of Drizzy and Obama. Take a look, if you dare:
This is not the first time Drake has referenced this meme. When he was on Saturday Night Live last year, the rapper opened with a song that was all about memes he had been featured in, and the Obama combo was one. "How can I explain to my mama/When you got my beard on Obama?" he sang.
While the song went over well, this version of the meme was met with more of a mixed reaction. Some people felt that it was disrespectful and even embarrassing.
Others saw it as Drake trying to make Obama's farewell all about himself instead.
Some people, however, just wondered what all the fuss was about.
Then again, maybe the whole thing was just an audition.
