What do you get when you cross President Obama, Dr. Dre and Andre Drummond? One of the greatest NBA all-star campaign videos ever made.
The Pistons on Friday posted a video of Obama “rapping” Dr. Dre and Eminem’s 1999 song “Forgot About Dre” with highlights of Drummond mixed in. The team did the same thing 10 days ago, with Drake and Future’s “Jumpman,” but this new one flows more smoothly, features a better song and is more relevant to Drummond (“Forgot About Dre”… Andre Drummond… get it?).

When the NBA released its most recent All-Star ballot update Thursday, Drummond trailed Carmelo Anthony by only 7,000 votes in the battle for the final Eastern Conference front-court starting spot. Drummond is averaging 17.8 points and a league-best 15.3 rebounds a game.
Those numbers seem like they should earn the 22-year old Drummond a starting spot, so what gives? Why isn’t he ahead of Melo? Because mother-suckers act like the forgot about Dre.
