Kendrick Lamar and Barack Obama are known admirers of each other's work, with the two having met at the White House previously. But that friendship will be put to the courts when Kendrick possibly takes on the departing U.S. President in basketball. Speaking to Complex at Art Basel in Miami, Kendrick jokingly challenged Obama to a game in Compton once he finishes up the presidency this coming January.

Watch the full interview below, with Kendrick elaborating more on what he thinks Obama will do once he leaves the White House.
