Emcee Michelle Obama is in the building. Seriously, the first lady has mad skillz on the mic and she's showing them off (along with some pretty hip dance moves) in a College Humor rap video that's all about encouraging kids to pursue higher education.

The FLOTUS teamed up with Saturday Night Live's Jay Pharaoh to create the song and video for "Go to College," in which she busts a few rhymes about college that might make Sasha and Malia facepalm in embarrassment. But a little bit of temporary teen angst pales in comparison to the first lady's Better Make Room initiative to make sure kids are focused on their educational endeavors.

In the song, Michelle raps, "Southside Chicago/We all know/We had to do overtime every night to make it tomorrow." She continues, "And everyone could really make their dream true/ He, kid listenin' in Michigan/That could be you."

Yas, Michelle. From becoming virtual BFFs with Beyonce to doing the dougie like a pro (remember that dance?) with Jimmy Fallon and slam dunking a basketball, she definitely has the cool mom game on lock.
