Have you rocked the vote yet? If not, Lil Yachty has a message for you, especially if you live in the state of Georgia.
The race for Georgia governor is between candidates Stacey Abrams (Democrat), Brian Kemp (Republican) and Ted Mez (Libertarian). Boat is putting his vote behind Abrams. On Saturday (Nov. 3), the Atlanta rhymer hopped on Instagram to offer his endorsement. Posting a photo of Abrams and former president Barack Obama, he captioned the pic, "Man I know I haven’t said too much about politics but to all my fans out there in Georgia of age I neeeeeed you all to go vote. It’s suuuuuper important. I’m with @staceyabrams ! #stacyabrams slattt!"
Abrams has gotten some big celebrity endorsements including Common and Oprah who took time off from being a billionaire to go door-to-door with the Democratic candidate in Atlanta last week.
A number of rappers are doing their part to engage people in the political process and have publicly backed certain candidates. Chance The Rapper put his name behind Amara Enyia in the Chicago mayoral race. Kanye West donated over $70,000 to the same candidate's campaign. Chano also recently participated in a hilarious skit about voting for Pod Save America's HBO special. Travis Scott recently publicly backed Beto O'Rourke in the Texas senate race.
