Wale is no stranger to the White House grounds and has been especially chummy with President Barack Obama and the First Family for a while now. The Washington, D.C. rapper made history after opening President Obama’s State of the Union address with a performance, marking the first time a rapper has done so.

While Wale might be the last artist one would expect to warm up the SOTU crowd, it appeared the veteran performer took on the challenge and rocked out as expected. If you haven’t seen a live performance Maybach Music Group artist, he’s definitely a pro on the big stage.

Wale made the most of his moment, and even palled around with some of the political elite in the building, including taking a selfie with Dr. Jill Biden, Vice President Joe Biden’s better half.

Watch the performance in short in the clip below. Head to the 48:00-minute mark.
