Detroit Pistons’ mashup features Obama rapping Eminem lyrics


Who the heck is in charge of creating content for the Detroit Pistons? More importantly, what are they on, and where can we get some?

To drum up support for Pistons center Andre Drummond's All-Star campaign, someone at the Piston's camp has created videos featuring President Barack Obama "rapping" by chopping and pasting clips from the president's speeches. Earlier in the month, they released a video featuring Obama rapping Drake's "Jumpman." On Friday, they released a video of Obama rapping Eminem's "Forgot About Dre." (Eminem, for his part, appears to have offered his official endorsement by tweeting his support.)

Voting closes 11:59 p.m. Monday, Jan. 18 . Vote at the NBA All-Star site.
