You know what? President Barack Obama never ceases to amaze me. And while on his historic Asian tour, he took some time out to beatbox with a Vietnamese rapper, 26-year-old Hàng Lâm Trang Anh, who goes by the name Suboi.

On Wednesday, during a town hall meeting, a woman told the president she was a rapper. So, of course, he asked her to spit some bars. And who says no to the president (besides Republicans)? No one.


“Do you need a little beat?” Obama asked her. “Go ahead, c’mon.”

“Vietnam or English?” she asked.

“In Vietnamese, of course, but I won’t know what it means,” the president answered.

Watch the magic unfold below.
