Although he hasn't acted in a few years, Drake has his eye on a big role, President Barack Obama! The rapper told VH1 News (via Rolling Stone) that he has been practicing the part for awhile.
"That’s the goal. I watch all the addresses. Any time 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."
Drake might have some competition as the President has previously said he'd love for Will Smith to play him one day. He told Entertainment Tonight back in 2008, "Will and I have talked about this because he has the ears!"
Despite this potential Will Smith setback, Drake said that he's looking for the right script to get back into acting (he was on Degrassi: The Next Generation, after all). "I've been reading scripts for awhile."
He continued, "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."
We can't wait to see what Drizzy comes up with!
