Drake may have been the undisputed winner in his feud with Meek Mill, but taking on Kendrick Lamar is a different story -- at least, if President Barack Obama has anything to say about it.

During a YouTube interview hosted by Swoozie on Friday, POTUS was asked if he is Team Drizzy or Team K. Dot. Obama was more than happy to pick a side. "Gotta go with Kendrick,” he said.

"I think Drake is an outstanding entertainer, but Kendrick -- his lyrics, his last album was outstanding," Obama explained. "Best album, I think, of last year."

Fast forward to the 17:00 mark below for the Drake-Kendrick question.

This shouldn't come as too big of a surprise, as the president previously picked "How Much a Dollar Cost" off Kendrick's GRAMMY-nominated album, To Pimp a Butterfly, as his favorite song of 2015.

When he's not weighing in on important hip-hop matters, Obama says that he dreams of being on Mount Rushmore. Check out what he told Jerry Seinfeld on Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.
