No matter how you feel about President Barack Obama, it's still surprising to learn the leader of the free world listens to Nas and Lil Wayne.

President Obama is updating his iPod playlist these days and getting a little more gangster with his music, he admitted in an interview with Rolling Stone.

"Thanks to Reggie [Love, the president's personal aide], my rap palate has greatly improved," President Obama says. "Jay-Z used to be what sort of predominated, but now I've got a little Nas and a little Lil Wayne and some other stuff, but I would not claim to be an expert."
