88-Keys recorded a “Dear Mr. President” for President Barack Obama on Pepsi’s Refresh Everything YouTube channel, where the New York rapper talked about one of the themes on his debut album ‘The Death Of Adam’ is the traditional family unit. “I know that’s probably not on the top of your priority, as far as things to address,” 88-Keys said. “Maybe you can fix it, maybe you can’t. Maybe you’re Dr. Phil, maybe you’re not. That’s something that’s pretty close to me and pretty dear to me, being that I’m a married man with two daughters, just like somebody else I know. I actually don’t personally know you but I know that you have a wife and two daughters.”
