The 2020 election season is underway in several states across the U.S. and on Tuesday (June 9), the state of Georgia held their primary elections. Migos' Offset shared that he casted his vote for the first time in his home state, telling his 16.6 million followers that he was proud to do so.
The trap music artist elaborated that he was previously unable to vote because of his past convictions but he was somehow able to “overcome this obstacle.”
“I feel good. I feel proud. I’m trying to make a difference so I came out in my state,” a jubilant ‘Set announced in a video posted to Instagram as he proudly showed off his “I Voted” sticker fashioned after a Georgia peach.
“Everybody [has] been going through the same pain,” he continued. “We can fix it and make a change. I just voted for my first [at] 28 years old. I got past my record and past history and I’m able to vote.”
The “Father of 4” rapper then encouraged his fans and anyone listening to make sure they “hit the polls.”
His fellow Atlanta rap stars T.I. and Jeezy also hit the polls on Tuesday while Lil Baby and Lil Yatchy used their platforms to encourage people to get out to polls and vote. Lil Yatchy shared a ballot breakdown of which politicians are running in a since-deleted Instagram post while Lil Baby reminded everyone of the power voting holds, writing on Instagram, “If We Want To Think About CHANGE, We have To Start Using The Power We Have!!”
