Michelle Obama Raps About the Benefits of a College Education

By Danica Lo

Just dropped: CollegeHumor's brilliant new music video, featuring First Lady Michelle Obama rapping about the benefits of a college education. The video is part of Obama's Better Make Room public awareness campaign aimed at Gen Z, today's teens — making the case for higher education.

"When I launched my Better Make Room campaign in October, I said this campaign is about celebrating students the same way we celebrate athletes and celebrities," Michelle Obama said in a statement. "I want to honor and empower young people who are working hard in school and pursuing their dreams — and I want to do it in a fun and fresh way — and that's why I was so excited to film this 'music video' with Jay Pharoah, CollegeHumor, and the Gregory Brothers."
