J. Cole, Nicki Minaj, Chance the Rapper, and More Met With President Obama to Talk Criminal Justice Reform news

Earlier today, President Barack Obama met with a dozen or so artists at the White House to discuss criminal justice reform and the administration’s My Brother’s Keeper initiative, which aims to “address persistent opportunity gaps faced by boys and young men of color and ensure that all young people can reach their full potential.”

According to a senior administration official, the artists selected for the meeting were chosen because they “found ways to engage on the issues of criminal justice reform and empowering disadvantaged young people across the country.” J. Cole, Nicki Minaj, Chance the Rapper, and Rick Ross all attended, as well as DJ Khaled, Alicia Keys, and Common. Ludacris was also there and counts this as his fifth time meeting the President.

While no photos have surfaced (yet) of these artists getting a chance to take a selfie with Obama, a number of them did document their experience on social media. Check out their tweets and IGs from the day’s meeting below.
