The â€œCocoa Butter Kissesâ€� 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 â€“ both speaking through their assistants and private phone numbers.
â€œI donâ€™t have his number, but I have a number for him. I have a person I could call that will say, â€˜OK, Iâ€™ll have him call you.â€™ Itâ€™s the same way with JAY-Z,â€� the rapper shared speaking to James Corden in an installment of Carpool Karaoke on â€œThe Late Late Show.â€� â€œHe 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 itâ€™s either JAY-Z or Barack Obama on the phone. I never know which one is calling when I get that call back number.â€�
And the 26-year-old rapper is close to Kanye West too.
â€œI hosted a thing in New York once, and he was there, and he said, â€˜Gimme your number, man,â€™ we were backstage. â€¦ Weâ€™re having a party later at a studio in New York, do you want to come?â€™ And I was like, â€˜Yeah!â€™ But then, he sent me a text at 3 a.m. saying, â€˜Weâ€™ll be getting there in about an hour.â€™ I was like, â€˜What do I do? Do I get dressed and go out at 4 a.m.?â€™
â€œIâ€™ve been in that same kind of place. Kanyeâ€™s the kind of dude where, like, youâ€™ll meet up with him to do one thing, and then heâ€™ll be like, â€˜Oh! I gotta go to Milan right now, letâ€™s get on this jet.â€™ And you gotta make a decision right there. Like, â€˜Am I about to follow Kanye to Milan or go to this date that I have planned?’â€�
