Wale probably knows the White House like the back of his own hand.

On Tuesday night, the rapper attended the State of the Union Address which marks the third time Wale has been on White House grounds. But this time was a little different.

While at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, the DC rapper made history as the first rapper to open up a State of the Union Address.  Before Michelle walked out in her stunning Marigold Narciso Rodriguez dress and Obama took the podium,  Wale got the crowd hype with a few tracks including “Chillin’” and “LoveHate Thing.”

Following Obama’s address to Congress, Wale took to Twitter to thank the White House for the larger than life opportunity.

The night also included a nice firm handshake with VP, Joe Biden.

Back in July, Wale joined FLOTUS for a “beating the odds summit” where they spoke to a group of 130 college-bound teens about overcoming obstacles and how to succeed in college. And just one year ago, the “Matrimony” rapper was invited to the president’s gun control announcement.

Must be nice.
