Chance the Rapper has Barack Obama’s phone number and joked him and music royalty JAY-Z are quite similar to contact – both speaking through their assistants and private phone numbers.
The “Cocoa Butter Kisses” hitmaker has revealed he has close connections with the former President of the United States as well as music royalty JAY-Z, and joked they are quite similar to contact – both speaking through their assistants and private phone numbers.
Speaking to James Corden in an instalment of “Carpool Karaoke” on “The Late Late Show”, he shared: “I don’t have his number, but I have a number for him. I have a person I could call that will say, ‘OK, I’ll have him call you.’ It’s the same way with JAY-Z. JAY-Z and Barack Obama are very similar. Both of them have an assistant that you have to call, and then you get a call from a private number, and it’s either JAY-Z or Barack Obama on the phone. I never know which one is calling when I get that call back number.”
And the 26-year-old rapper is also close to Kanye West too.
James revealed: “I hosted a thing in New York once, and he was there, and he said, ‘Gimme your number, man,’ we were backstage.
