We already know she dances, but it turns out that First Lady Michelle Obama can rap, too. In "Go to College," a new video from College Humor and the Gregory Brothers, Mrs. Obama teams up withSaturday Night Live's Jay Pharaoh to rap about the glory of higher education. FLOTUS, it turns out, got flow.

The video begins with two kids sitting at a table, both wondering aloud what exactly they want to do after graduating high school. Pharoah pops up, the track starts, and he begins rapping a verse about the glories of a college degree.

Things heat up when Obama strolls in to drop a fierce verse: "Southside Chicago / we all know / We had to do overtime every night to make it to tomorrow / And everyone could really make their dream come true / Hey kid listening in Michigan, this could be you."

Watch the video above and then daydream about some night at the White House when a half-in-the-bag President Obama is listening to his favorite track of 2015 and Michelle busts in to drop bars with Kendrick. What a time to be alive.
