Obama's iPod Playlist: Bob Dylan, Rolling Stones, ... Lil Wayne?

More

President Obama is on the cover of the October 15 issue of Rolling Stone. In the interview with the magazine, the President discusses the Tea Party, the November elections, the economy, and—the Associated Press reports—what's playing on his iPod:

Obama says his iPod has about 2,000 songs, including ones by Stevie Wonder, Bob Dylan and the Rolling Stones. The president's personal aide Reggie Love has improved Obama's rap repertoire, introducing him to artists like Nas and Lil Wayne.

Obama also says his daughters, 12-year-old Malia and 9-year-old Sasha, are getting old enough to start sharing their taste in music with their dad.
