If President Obama has a thing for hip-hop, here are five artists to add to his iPod

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, our president revealed that his music palette has expanded slightly in recent years with a little help from his personal aide, Reggie Love. New additions to his usual standbys of Bob Dylan and the Rolling Stones include Nas and Lil' Wayne. It's a little weird having a president who not only admits publicly to liking Lil Wayne, but also to the fact that his two children, Malia and Sasha, are "hipping" him to things.

What? Hipping? Really? Goodness gracious, Mr. President. You're just adorable sometimes. At any rate, since President Obama is expanding his hip-hop repertoire, we've been thinking about a few other artists he might want to add to his somewhat pathetic 2,000-song iPod, find our picks after the jump.
