B-Rock
Russell Simmons and Awesomeness TV CEO Brian Robbins have launched a collaborative YouTube network called All Def Digital, which Simmons says will be molded into a multimedia content production empire.

Amonsgt its projected offerings is a web series titled B-Rock, which is described as an outrageous, irreverent, and hilarious spin on the Obama White House, chronicling the adventures of our 44th President's super-alter ego. 

Leading the Free World isn't an easy task. And while diplomacy is preferred, sometimes the President needs to put down his ego-suppressing Cool cigarettes and get "gangsta," transforming into the trash-talking, butt-kicking, doorag-wearing gangsta, B-ROCK. No pundit, politician, or terrorist is safe from his wrath...

So I suppose we don't want Barack to get angry, because we won't like him when he's angry (those who've seen the SNL skit with Dwayne Johnson as Obama will know what I'm talking about). 

A trailer for the upcoming new series is embedded below (no ETA on when it'll debut):
