Malia Obama Is America's Next Rap Tastemaker 


Malia Obama, Known Teen, has been up to her USUAL SHIT: a selfie of the eldest Obama daughter wearing a Pro Era tee has surfaced (Gawker has more details about the photo’s origins here), and everybody is mostly like, “good for Joey Bada$$.”

Fresh off a lo-o-o-ng Hawaiian vacation with the First Family—which the New York Times decided was definitely awful and filled with eye-rolling, door-slamming Teen Mischief, because #parenting is #hard in the #social #media #age—the girls are back in town, and Malia is maybe-probably becoming the next great patron of American rap.

Although the president has arguably lost most of his swagger points over the years, Malia has only grown stronger, attending a Chance the Rapper set at Lollapalooza over the summer and now this, a mysterious selfie-turned-endorsement. Mom, you can have the fashion industry, Malia says with her eyes. I am Youth. I am Culture. I have Roc Nation on speed-dial.
