Democrat Presidential hopefl Barack Obama has namechecked rapper Lil Wayne during a speech.

Obama, speaking in a town hall in Powder Springs, Georgia yesterday (July 9), urged schoolkids not to quit school, saying that unless they were as good a rapper as Lil Wayne it would be a bad career move.

"You are probably not that good a rapper," Obama told the assembled crowd. "Maybe you are the next Lil Wayne, but probably not, in which case you need to stay in school."
