Rappers are flocking to the polls in an effort to make their voices heard. Atlanta rappers T.I. and Jeezy hit the polls on Tuesday, and urged their followers to get out and vote as well. Migos rapper Offset has joined them, revealing that he has voted in Atlanta during Tuesday’s primary election, marking his first time voting.
The 28-year-old, who’s real name is Kiari Kendrell Cephus, proudly posted a video revealing that he had voted and encouraged his fans to follow suit.
“I feel good, I feel proud. I’m tryna make a difference so I came out in my state, Georgia, Atlanta. Go vote, come hit the polls up.” He continued on, “I just voted, my the first time, 28 years old. I got past my record and my past history, and I’m able to vote.”
Offset was previously barred from being able to vote due to being a felon.
“My First time ever voting because I wasn’t allowed!” he said in the caption. “I over came this obstacle and decided to make a real difference !!!! Everybody please go vote today (LAST DAY)!!!”
Congrats to Offset and all felons who have regained their rights to vote.
