Jay-Z Gets to White House Before Tavis Smiley

Shawn Carter dropped by the White House before a concert in DC.


Jay-Z dropped by 1600 Pennsylvania Ave before a concert last night

During the final moments of his performance at Verizon Center Wednesday night, Jay-Z casually dropped a gigantic boast: "I just came from the White House."

White House officials were button-lipped about the visit Wednesday, but confirmed on Thursday morning that, yes, Jay-Z did indeed visit 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. An official said the rapper toured the White House on Wednesday and had a quick, unscheduled visit with President Obama. The POTUS did not attend the concert.

Jigga Man just made the Smiley Hate List.
