Hip-Hop Hits Facebook Live to Get Young Voters to the Polls

T.I., 2 Chainz and more rock the vote.

Published November 8, 2016

For as long as it’s been a part of mainstream culture, hip-hop has been politically active. Now with possibly the most polarizing election in U.S. history in the books, some of the culture’s top names took to Facebook Live to encourage their fans to get out and vote. 

Artists such as T.I., 2 Chainz, London on Da Track and more utilized Facebook’s newest feature – which sends a notification to your followers to let them tune in to your live feed – telling their fans to make their vote count.

As Election Day comes to a close and America is on the verge of finding out who will be running the country for the next four years, rappers and other artists like Sevyn Streeter, who was recently denied singing the national anthem at a Philadelphia 76ers game before the organization welcomed her back, are continuing to go live in an effort to get people to exercise their voice.

Below are some of the Facebook Live feeds as the polls round out the remaining hours of Election Day.
