(IMAGE: BOSSIP.COM) Democratic Nominee Barack Obama graces the cover of the upcoming issue of Rolling Stone Magazine. In the issue Barack talks about the music he listens to and grew up on, as well as, the hip-hop artists he supports.

Barack on the music he grew up on:

If I had one musical hero, it would have to be Stevie Wonder,” says Obama, who grew up on Seventies R&B and rock staples including Earth, Wind and Fire, Elton John and the Rolling Stones.

“Every time I talk to Jay-Z, who is a brilliant talent and a good guy, I enjoy how he thinks,” says Obama, “He’s serious and he cares about his art,” he adds. “That’s somebody who is going to start branching out and can help shape attitudes in a real positive way.”

I love how Barack keeps it real and doesn’t make up artists just so that he can relate to different types of people. You can read more of Rolling Stone Magazines’ interview with Barack HERE!
