Michelle Obama Flows on the Mic: ‘You Should Go to College'

Jay Pharoah is joined by the first lady when he asks "Help me out, FLOTUS!"

Michelle Obama, first lady of the United States, drops bars with "SNL's" Jay Pharoah in a new video for the College Humor website.

The video takes place in and around the White House. It begins with Pharoah urging two young people to go to college. The comic is joined by the first lady when he asks "Help me out, FLOTUS!"

Obama rhymes about herself and President Barack Obama coming from the South Side of Chicago and working hard.

"South Side Chicago, we all know, we had to do overtime, every night, to make it tomorrow," Obama raps. "And, everyone could really make their dream true. Hey, kid listenin' in Michigan, that could be you."

The video is in support of the first lady's "Better Make Room" campaign, which encourages teens ages 14 to 19 to consider higher learning. 

The campaign collaborates with Civic Nation, a nonprofit organization, and the U.S. Department of Education. The  "Better Make Room"campaign also has 33 partners that include College Humor, Funny or Die, NBCUniversal, the YMCA, Vine, Mashable and more.
