Now this is what I like to see. As entertainers, rappers aren’t required to give back to their communities or use their status to help anyone other than themselves. That’s why I always love to see when artists do something positive that benefits others.
In the clip above, 2 Chainz speaks on why he teamed up with Respect My Vote and briefly explains how those who have been incarcerated can still get out and vote.
Now we all know that Mr. Chainz’s involvement with this campaign won’t get as much media attention as his big-booty Birthday anthems or news that he’s alligned himself with G.O.O.D. Music, but you have to tip your hat off to him for this. There’s probably a good percentage of his fans who have never voted before. There’s also probably a good percentage of his fans who are ex-felons. So if he can convince even one person to get out there and vote, I’d that a win.
