While campaigning in Ohio, President Obama stopped by Radio One’s Z107.9 and shed some light on his friendship with music royalty Jay-Z and Beyonce. 

During the interview, he talked about becoming friends with The Carters who have been extremely active Obama supporters, raising $4M for his campaign last month.

Hey said, “I’ve gotten to know these guys over the first several years. They’re good people. Beyonce could not be sweeter to Michelle and the girls. So they’re good friends. We talk about the same things I talk about with all my friends.”

The Prez even offered a little daddy advice to Blue Ivy’s poppa, “I made sure that Jay-Z was helping Beyonce out [with the baby], and not leaving it all with Beyonce and the mother-in-law.”

Not only is President Obama a friend, he’s also a fan of the couple’s music. When asked about his favorite Jay-Z song he said, “You know, I gotta say I go with some other stuff like ‘My 1st Song,’ which just kinda keeps me steady. It’s a great song. It reminds you that you always have to stay hungry.”

In a last push for voters and a reminder for supporters, President Obama drove home his accomplishments to the listeners,

“Think about all the things we’ve already gotten done. We saved an auto industry, saved a million jobs throughout Ohio and Michigan, we’ve gotten health care reform, we have made sure that we expanded student loan programs and Pell Grant programs; so a lot of stuff has gotten done, but we have a lot more to do. My hope is we have a decisive victory in this election, that Republicans, who spent a lot of time worry about trying to beat me, will start focusing on trying to improve the country.”
