Hip-hop’s first couple, Jay-Z and Beyoncé, visited the nation’s First Family at the White House on Wednesday (March 3). Here are a couple photos of Mr. and Mrs. Carter, along with Beyoncé’s mother Tina Knowles, Trey Songz, and his manager Kevin Liles in a conference room at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
Jay reflected on his rise from the streets of Brooklyn to the Oval Office. “For me, being with [President] Obama or having dinner with Bill Clinton… It’s crazy,” he told Interview magazine. “It’s mind-blowing, because where I come from is just another world. We were just ignored by politicians—by America in general.”
