DaBaby challenges himself to be more politically inclined during elections
Political discourse has heightened in recent weeks just ahead of the election. Alongside politicians like former President Barack Obama, celebrities have entered the chat to encourage voters to head to the polls.
The Grammy-nominated rapper partnered with the #NoCap2020 campaign to sway North Carolina voters to vote. The initiative, VOTE BABY VOTE, included a statewide bus tour, social media program, events for North Carolinians under the age of 40. CNN reports the artist partnered with Lyft to offer free rides to Charlotte residents to the polls on Election Day. Use code VOTEWITHDABABY.
On Election Day, DaBaby is expected to pop up at polls in North Carolina with television host Ally Lynn. “This isn’t my first time voting, but after seeing everything that’s happened across the world, in our communities—it is a necessity to get my people involved, especially in my hometown,” DaBaby said in a press release.
Young voters in North Carolina will make almost half of the state’s electorate.
According to the #NoCap2020 initiative. This fall, North Carolina voters under the age of 40 will make up nearly 40% of the state’s electorate. “If there were ever a moment when young Black folks needed to vote and get engaged, this is that moment. We need to have our voices heard, right now. With DaBaby’s roots in our state, we have an opportunity to empower young people to action like never before,” the #NoCap2020 director John Vincent said in a statement.
Back in June, the “BOP” artist was dragged on Twitter for saying he’d vote for Kanye West. West began his unforeseen presidential campaign mid-summer.
The North Carolina rapper has made profound progress shortly after he made an effort to be involved politically. Be sure to make your vote count!
