Drake Wants To Play President Barack Obama In Biopic

Drizzy also reveals that he's penning a project with some of his friends.

Drake has taken a break from his acting career, which included a stint on Degrassi: The Next Generation, to pursue his musical dreams. During an interview with VH1 News, the Young Money rapper said that he would hit the big screen to play President Barack Obama in a biopic.

“I hope somebody makes a movie about Obama’s life soon because I could play him,” he said. “That’s the goal. 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.”

He said that he’s been reading scripts for some time and is actually working on penning a project with associates.

“I’ve been reading scripts for a while,” he said. “I want to do something great. I want to do something for my culture: the younger people who are still in tune with everything going on. I’m actually writing with my friends right now.”

    I got a prediction. He's gonna come out as a homo in the next few months and turn undercover fag hag.

  • daviddanielz

    Can this Glitter Blood aka Drake say anything worst?! Boy this guy is just a corny guy. I cant wait for his career to be over with. He's the new Ja Rule. Im making a perdiction: 1. Because he lost to Common, got bitch slapped by Ludacris, and threatened by Beanie Sigel. I'm guessing his next album or mix tape will be all hiphop. 2. It wont work, the cats out of the bag and people know he's fake. Just like Rick Ross he will have to get help from industry artist to make him relevant. 3. Album sales will be big again but that will be the last big album. From there he will lose his girl fan base. 4. Retire or go back to acting on a tv show.

    Why would you want to play Barak Obama? At least play someone who has done something positive for the community, not embarrassed it..

    I still can't figure out why people are trying to hate on Drake, when hasn't done anything wrong. People hate for no reason at all. Kinda reminds me of Middle School.

    Its perfect! Because Drake really is the Obama of Hip-Hop! haha most underwhelming let down of a muthafucker ever, yet millions love him out of pure ignorance. I smell an oscar!

    and fuck condescending Europeans. I see some posting. I been to Europe, yall are just as fucking stupid as most Americans. You like to act so travelled and crack jokes about Americans not knowing the world, when the fact is 3 of your countries can fit in New England. You been to Paris and Germany? Word? I been to Rhode Island and Connecticut. It takes a day. Go fuck ya selves.

  • Ghos of Nat Turner

    ROFL Drake, no. A Canadian Jew who's acting is wacker than his music. Just no. Considering the ears, there is something wrong if Will Smith doesn't get that role.

    u i am not american or canadian but the comment below me is what makes me dislike americans. they only care about themselves.

      WOW you just generalized a whole fucking country made up of mostly immigrants or decendants of immigrants from other countries. You sound like a one of those dick heads who think is trendy to dis the united states. Well guess what fucker? Important countries in Europe (i.e. italy, germany, greece, etc) are going down the shit hole with the US cus the blood money is all ready mixed. Yall aint no fucking different.

  • emperor

    what studio would put their money into a obama biopic with drake in the lead. makes me laugh.

  • It really dont matter

    It is a fuckin shame how people biased people are to this nigga Aubrey for bein a canadian jew, which has nothing to do with his music, his career, or hip hop period. I thought hip hop was about equality. Somewhere down the line, hip hop became so prejudice. Honestly, i dont give a fuck if hes a canadian jew who grew up better off, that has absolutely nothing to do with his music. You cant say he hasnt been through what he says he has, because you dont know the nigga. i cant say most of you jaw jappin fuck niggas never been in the field cause i dont know you either. But then again when i look to the right, everybody that liked HHDX on FB look like some o to the left ass people who aint wit the shit to begin wit. I guess what im tryin to say is, there wasnt this much hate in 08. nobody was callin the nigga soft when comeback came out. so where is it comin from now? His success grew and the hate grew with it i mean that cant be a coincidence. But about the article, LMAO aubrey i dont think playing obama would work out. you dont even look like him. DEnzel Washington is a better candidate. And Spike Lee gotta direct it too.

      He's a shit rapper dude. Get off his dick.

      some people in this site honestly sound gayer than the niggas they're claimin to be gay. they start dissin em on their fashion sense and what they wear in the picture of the week, as if they were dressin in Louis Vuittons all day long. when really they probly in their purple bathrobe bumpin their favorite rapper who was 5x less swag than the nigga theyre rippin on. hilarious, quite

    In no way was i saying i hate all Jews or Canadian ppl, U cant sterotype and group of ppl(black, white, Asian, Arab, etc.) as being all the same way. All i was implying is that Drakes real culture, is not "young ppl who know whats going on." Let us into ur world, don't steal ours. Let us know about Bar Mitzvah and Hanukkah. Eminem don't come in trying to be a black dude, he is influnced by black "culture", but he talks about white shit. I do strongly dislike Drake, and what he represents, but not all Jews or Canadians

      I agree - I've always wondered what it's like to be one of the chosen race. Do they just open up a bank account when your 13, and give you a parcel of stolen land from west bank as a comming of age gift??? Step ur bars up Drake. Shalom!

  • Anonymous

    Funny thing is: Since he originally is an actor, you can think he hast to have some interesting Music videos and performances. But no, everytime I see him on TV performing he looks like he is only looking at one point and jumps around a little bit. And mostly his music videos aren't something special either. And I'm clearly NOT a Drake hater. I just wonder about the fact that this guy actually used to be an actor and therefore a performer. That's why I don't believe he would be a strong actor in a full-length film.

    • Anonymous

      Actor is a bit strong. He was on sitcom playing a guy in a wheelchair. It was essentially him, in a wheel chair saying stuff... I think I've got a betta chance of playing Obama.

    Man if Barak says no, and calls Drake a bad rapper, he'll be the coldest motherfucker alive. Like I didn't give a shit about him two months ago, but Fam, you gotta listen. If he hate on Drake, hate on Drake, he's the best in the world. Like my nigga, Common, I've been listening to him since his classic, Universal Mind Control, he's a legend, the coldest dude in rap, I'm glad that I bought his second album, The Dreamer/The Believer.

    Why does every light skin nigga with a square head want to play Obama? Obama isn't a caveman jew from Canada, and besides, Drake's voice is way too weak. I think Alphacat would be a better Obama than Drake. Hell, Alphacat is a better Drake than Drake.

    "If you ask anyone who knows me, I'm good at impressions." I believe that. But just because you can impersonate someone doesn't mean you can act. And just because you can impersonate a rapper doesn't mean you can rap.
