January 20 will see the administration of America’s first ever black president come to an end. President Barack Obama bid farewell to the country he has led for eight years, offering a message of hope at a time when so many are fearful about what is to come from President-elect Donald Trump.

The president built up a lot of good will in the Hip Hop community throughout his two terms in the Oval Office, frequently discussing his favorite artists and inviting them to State dinners held in the White House.

Plenty of rappers took to Instagram to say goodbye to Obama, with the president’s fellow Chicago native Twista going so far as to change his Twitter avi to a picture of Obama with a “Farewell” banner on the bottom.

Even Canadian Drake paid tribute to the president with a pretty startling photoshop of his own hair on Obama’s face.

Nas praised Obama for for being “the realest human being” and “the coolest of the cool.”

They weren’t the only ones who were emotional to see Obama go. Many more expressed their fond wishes.

No complaints! Great job!
