Chance The Rapper always manages to change the game by playing by his own rules.
The Chi-Town prince announced that he will team up with the NAACP to bring voter registration to his U.S. shows, just a day before kicking off his Magnificent Coloring World Tour. The rapper took to Twitter to announce the dope news, using the NAACP hashtag #StayWokeAndVote.
President and CEO of the NAACP, Cornell William Brooks, said in a press release, “Chance the Rapper is an artist whose music praises and lifts up our common humanity, and whose call for action speaks to the yearning of this moment. This year, more than it has in a generation, we must use the power of our voices and our votes and exercise our sacred right to vote.”
The registration drive begins Sept. 24 during the tour’s Chicago stop, and will continue through Oct. 21.
