Watch these Atlanta high school students’ rap tribute to Barack Obama

Two Atlanta high school students delivered their tribute to President Barack Obama in the waning days of his presidency.

During the annual State of the District event at Atlanta’s King Middle School, Therrell High School students Alexia Brown and Dacorian Bass delivered lines like “He can run the White House with his eye closed / With a tweet or a snapchat the world knows” and “Because you couldn’t even do it just a little bit / Picked up the unemployment rate by a thousand.”

“Because of you, blacks can be successful,” they rapped. “My life your life our lives matter.”
