If you thought President Barack Obama bodied his swan song speech at the Democratic National Convention last month, you can thank the one and only Slim Shady for getting POTUS amped up.

Obama can be seen backstage with his face screwed up, bobbing his head to Eminem's "Lose Yourself," the ultimate get-amped song, with lyrics like these:

No more games, I'm a change what you call rage
Tear this muthaf—kin' roof off like two dogs caged
I was playin' in the beginnin', the mood all changed
I been chewed up and spit out and booed off stage
But I kept rhymin' and stepwritin' the next cipher
Best believe somebody's payin' the pied piper

You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime you better


See, now we're ready to go conquer the world. Get it in, POTUS!

Obama proceeded to walk out on the stage and give the most electrifying and effective political endorsement of all time for Hillary Rodham Clinton, bringing the house down and people to their feet at the same time.
