Barack Obama’s final speech as President of the United States moved many on Tuesday night, including Drake who turned to Instagram to pay tribute to the outgoing leader.
The Canadian rapper, who likely watched along with millions as Obama delivered his farewell speech in Chicago, was just as touched by POTUS’ words as the rest of us. “As a Canadian that calls America home for part of the year I will always carry your words and the memory of your time in office with me as inspiration,” Drake captioned a mash-up photograph of himself and the president. “Big up yaself O.”
The meme has since gone viral across social media, with Drake’s post alone garnering close to 800,000 likes and over 8,000 comments.
