Willy digs Weezy: Bill Clinton's show of support for Lil Wayne

Posted By on Wed, Nov 3, 2010 at 11:47 AM

The latest in this week's never-ending WTF festival of politics dovetailing with music has President Bill Clinton waxing about Lil Wayne on Pittsburgh's WKST "Morning Freak Show."

When asked what he thought of The Carter's upcoming release from prison, 42 said:

"I know this is kind of a funny question for you to ask me, but [Chelsea] introduced me to rap and hip hop music after I said some things she thought were not very smart...but this guy's smart and he's got ability."

Okay, so Clinton's a charmer and probably cobbled together a nice soundbyte for the young kids tuning in. It's not like he was praising the "y'all boys too weak like 14 days" line from his guest spot in "Damn I'm Cold," but it's still pretty neat, huh?

Also, Hova in 2018.
