President Barack Obama 2nd Inaugural

With Barack Obama‘s historic presidency ending just before the start of Black History Month, Screens And Rhymes collaborated with DJ Thaddeus Jeffries to create this playlist honoring the 44th president. Considering how things are going with number 45, Americans are more thankful for his predecessor than ever before.

This 42 track mix was curated from Barack’s own Presidential playlists, the long line of artists that visited the White House during his term, and the film Southside With You.

Screens And Rhymes called President Obama “the greatest pop culture President of all time,” for his support of popular music and the arts during his tenure. “Thanks Obama” mixes funk, soul, hip-hop, R&B, jazz from the contemporary to the classic.” Enjoy cuts from Beyoncé, Nas and Young Jeezy are represented, to Nina Simone, Marvin Gaye and The O’Jays.
