US former president Barack Obama is giving his stamp of approval to rapper Drake to play him in a movie.

Obama revealed this when he was asked to comment about Drake’s intentions to play him in a biopic and how he would feel about Drizzy taking on the role in a conversation with Complex’s 360 with Speedy Morman.

I will say this, Drake seems to be able to do anything he wants, I mean, that is a talented brother. If the time comes, and he’s ready… Drake has, more importantly, my household’s stamp of approval. I suspect Malia and Sasha would be just fine with it.”

Drake previously shared his interest in playing Obama in a film about the President’s life in a 2010 interview with Paper magazine.

I hope somebody makes a movie about Obama’s life soon because I could play him. That’s the goal. I watch all the addresses. Any time 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.”

Obama has shown love to Drake in the past. Back in January, Drake revealed a thank you letter that he received from the Obama family after he wished their daughter Sasha for her 16th birthday.
