The Detroit Pistons really want center Andre Drummond to get voted into this year’s NBA All-Star Game. So, naturally, they blessed us with a video of President Obama rapping Drake & Future’s "Jumpman."
And now, thanks to Toronto’s own @Drake, a message from President @BarackObama … RT #NBAVote Andre Drummond https://t.co/5s0VHNI0YL

Well, not quite rapping. Like we saw with this "Hotline Bling" "cover," the Pistons cut Obama’s speeches into Drake’s first verse on the "What A Time To Be Alive" track.
Why did they do it? Is it because the February game is taking place in Drake’s hometown of Toronto? Is it because the song is ostensibly about basketball? Whatever the reason, this might be the push Drummond needs to make it to the game.
The 2016 NBA All-Star game will take place on Sunday, February 14, at Toronto’s Air Canada Centre. You can vote for your picks over the next twelve days at NBA.com.
