Obama speech music

We know President Barack Obama likes Kendrick Lamar and Game of Thrones, and now we know he pumps himself up for speeches with music from Eminem.

In a behind-the-scenes video from the recent Democratic National Convention, we get to witness the outgoing US president bopping his head up and down to Eminem’s 2002 hit “Lose Yourself”, right before he hits the stage.

Obama is also head busting former President Bill Clinton over his wife, and Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton: “I hope you don’t mind me saying, she’s a little more qualified than you,” he told his predecessor. “I included myself in that category.”
