About

"We President Now" is an expression mocking African Americans celebrating the election of Barack Obama as the 44th President of the United States. Online, it is often associated with a photograph of rapper Lil Wayne and has inspired variations using the phrasal template "we X now."

Origin

The exact origin of the expression is unknown. According to a post on /r/OutOfTheLoop,[2] 4chan users began posting the phrase on the /pol/ (politically incorrect) board after Obama was elected in 2008, but no archived threads have been found.

Spread

On January 7th, 2010, an image macro of rapper Lil Wayne with the caption "We President Now" was uploaded to the 4chan archive site Chan4Chan[1] (shown below). On November 5th, IGN Forums[3] user LegacyAccount submitted a post asking for an explanation of the "'We President Now' meme," where many noted that the quote had been falsely attributed to Lil Wayne.

A page featuring other captioned versions of the photograph was subsequently created on Troll.me.[5] In March 2012, a screenshot of a Facebook rant in which a user named Tyrone Concord Jones writes "we president now" was submitted to the AllHipHop Forums[4] (shown below).
