Hip hop was in the building.

Young Chancelor brought his father Ken Bennett, and I must say the pair looked very dapper.

Chance shared on his Instagram story earlier that day that he felt pretty cool about being able to bring his dad because his first visit to the White House was as his dad's date in 2009.

His father once served as deputy assistant to Obama.

Also, how dope is it that his invitation was addressed to “Chance The Rapper”? Way to stay hip Obama.

Frank Ocean also brought one of his parents as a date. How gorgeous is his mother, Katonya Breaux?!

The real MVP here though is Obama for being the only person in the world to get Frank Ocean to be on time for something.

Still couldn't get him to wear dress shoes though, lol.

Either way, Barack and Michelle are cool for inviting them to the state dinner. The guest list will probably never be this lit again.
