Drake Wants To Play Obama 

Drizzy hopes to act like the President

Drake has discussed his admiration for the President of the United States, Barack Obama. The Canadian rapper said that one day he’d love to play the role of Obama in a movie.

Drizzy has apparently already started making preperations for the hopeful upcoming role.

He told Paper Magazine: "I hope somebody makes a movie about Obama's life soon because I could play him. That's the goal [laughs]. 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. I want to be involved in great film projects. I don't want to do the basketball movie that everyone does. I don't want to do the typical black film that everyone expects. I think that I have enough experience to actually be involved in a real meaty project full of substance."
