Chance The Rapper Sets Up Voter Registration At His “Magnificent Coloring World” Tour – Tha Wire
Chance The Rapper is making some major noise these days. First of all, his new single, "No Problem," is fire. The track features 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne, and can be found on his album Coloring Book. Below, peep his new music video!
The rapper is currently traveling the nation on his Magnificent Coloring World, selling out everywhere he goes. I'm happy to say his tour will make two stops close to home, too. FYI, Chance will be in New Orleans at the Mardi Gras World Ballroom on October 13 and Houston at the Revention Music Center October 15. On top of that, he's using his voice and popularity to urge his fans to vote.
According the reports, the Chi-Town MC took to Twitter Monday to let everyone know that he's teaming up with the NAACP. The rapper wants people to know voting is not only our right, but it's also super important. So he's giving his fans an opportunity to register to vote by having voter registration booths set-up at all the venues his tour stops at.
Now that's what's up! It's also perfect timing because the deadline to register vote is October 11, if you want to vote in the upcoming November 8 Presidential election. Trust me, this election is way too close for comfort, so your vote is critical. By the way, if you're not planning on voting....YOU'REPLAYING YOURSELF.
Chance is much more than a rapper. He's an activist, and already has a long list of accomplishments towards doing the greater good. He's especially active in his own community in Chicago, where we all know the gun violence has exploded out of control. Since he entered the game, Chance The Rapper has been an advocate for the people of his community, before his career even took off. He's been very vocal about his opinions on social injustices, racial equality and more.
In 2014, the rapper met with President Obama to talk the POTUS initiative, My Brother's Keeper Challenge. He's joined several celebs like Alicia Keys, J. Cole and more to promote racial justice. Last year, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel even named the rapper Chicago's Outstanding Youth of the Year. So he's really making a difference.
Now Chance is doing his part to get out the vote, with #staywokeandvote. Big ups, Chance! This is how you use your gift. For all things entertainment, listen to Tha Wire every weekday at 12:50 p.m. and 3:50 p.m. and only on The Peoples Station 107 Jamz.
