A long way from Compton, Secretary of State John Kerry and Snoop Dogg (or is it Snoop Lion now?) fist-bumped at the White House (prompting the comment from V.P. Joe Biden, "Ooh, he gave you the pound!”).

The surprising hangout took place at a party in early December hosted by the Obama administration to honor the 2013 Kennedy Center Honorees.

Snoop posted the video of the bump (a double fist-pound) on his Instagram account, commenting "boss life."

Certainly not the most controversial fist-bump in the Obama White House.
