"Everyone could really make their dream true / Hey kid, listenin' in Michigan, that could be you."

FLOTUS is getting her flow to promote college education. In a new rap video powered by CollegeHumor, First Lady Michelle Obama teams with Saturday Night Live comic Jay Pharoah to kick a few rhymes in the name of higher learning.

"Southside Chicago / We all know / We had to do overtime every night to make it tomorrow," she raps. "And everyone could really make their dream true / Hey kid, listenin' in Michigan, that could be you."

Hashtag bars.

According to a statement from the Office of the First Lady, the music video collaboration aims to bring awareness to Mrs. Obama's Better Make Room campaign, which launched as part of her Reach Higher campaign to celebrate students' stories. 

Does this signal that a Michelle Obama mixtape is on the way? Probably not, but the First Couple has been known to be down with pop culture. Barack and Michelle revealed to People that their favorite tracks of 2015 were Kendrick Lamar's "How Much A Dollar Cost" and Mark Ronson's "Uptown Funk" featuring Bruno Mars.
