What rhymes with knowledge? College!

That’s the theme of a new “CollegeHumor” video released Thursday, featuring rap verses from first lady Michelle Obama and “SNL” castmember Jay Pharoah.

“South Side Chicago, we all know, we had to do overtime every night to make it tomorrow. And everyone could really make their dream true. Hey, kid listening in Michigan, that could be you!” the first lady raps.

The video is part of the first lady’s “Better Make Room” initiative, which seeks to promote higher education. The program launched in late October.

This isn’t the first time Michelle Obama has used a performance to promote the White House’s agenda. In February 2014, she appeared in a skit on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” to promote healthy eating and exercise. In January 2014, the first lady “crashed” a White House appearance with the Miami Heat focused on eating fruits and vegetables and staying hydrated.
