The pair will be meeting in the same venue for the first time after feuding with each other over the years. In 2010, Obama called West a "jackass" for interrupting Taylor Swift at the MTV Video Music Awards.

Then in a 2013 radio interview with 107.0FM in Philadelphia, Kanye said, "I don’t care about the president; I care about my music bringing joy to people. He should have mentioned my baby mama's name coz we both are from Chicago. I am all about the thoughts and impact not about me being called a jackass."

He added, "I’m not gonna mention him [Obama] no more…I’m pass that. That’s out of my thoughts because it’s like lowering my pride."

Again, in his June 2014 interview with Power106 FM, Kanye slammed the world leader one more time saying,

"You [Obama] can't effect change from inside the White House like that . . .You gotta have the money," but admitted, "Good ideas usually aren't connected to money as much . . . Creativity and extreme genius are extremely cheap."

So, if Kanye West is actually meeting Barack Obama in San Francisco on Saturday, we only wonder what will happen!
