The First Lady Rapping About Going to College Is Exactly What Your Morning Needs

#FLOTUSbars trending on Twitter / Waitin' for all them 'Pubs to be bitter.

This morning, College Humor released “Go To College,” a music video that’s trying to motivate more kids to go to college. They were not playing around with this one; they brought on First Lady Michelle Obama to rap a few bars about her own college experience. She goes hard in this video, and to be honest, I would so not mind if she released her own complete album. I am here for that.

The #FLOTUSbars hashtag on Twitter has really taken off in response to the video. It’s packed with folks writing rhymes they’d like to hear the First Lady spit. Friends, a lot of these rhymes are fire.

There. Now aren’t you all motivated and fired up? I am so, so glad that we’ve got such a sociable, internet-culture savvy FLOTUS and POTUS.
