(Newser) – Justin Bieber might have some kind of hotline to Bill Clinton, but Jay-Z has one to President Obama. They're texting buddies. Jay-Z revealed as much in an interview with radio station Hot97, reports Politico. The president uses lots of sports analogies, says Jay-Z, offering up this example:

  • "When he was getting elected the second time, he was like, 'Hey, you know, fourth quarter, just give me the ball.' I said, 'Word.'"
