Watch Michelle Obama, ‘SNL’ Star Jay Pharoah ‘Go to College’

FLOTUS schools the youths on higher education in new clip for ‘Better Make Room’ campaign

First Lady Michelle Obama has done it all: Dunked on the Miami Heat, gone push-up for push-up with Ellen DeGeneres and, in a new video for College Humor, cemented her place as the only mom allowed to rap.

“Go to College” features Saturday Night Live star Jay Pharoah dancing in the White House and preaching the value of higher education to the youths (and making sure they know they can study astronomy and archeology, but absolutely not astrology). 

FLOTUS, for her part, drops a fire hook and a few bars of tight internal rhyme: “Southside Chicago we all know / We had to do overtime every night to make it tomorrow / And everyone can really make their dream true / Hey, kid listenin in Michigan that could be you.”

The “Go to College” clip is part of First Lady Obama’s Better Make Room campaign and its Reach Higher initiative, which is designed to promote post-high school education among kids 14 to 19 years old.
