The Georgia rapper is not new to encouraging people to vote, as he recently performed at Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’ rally with fellow hip hop artist Common. He also took time to express that this is his first year voting and why he felt he never could.
“After I caught my first felony when I was 17 years old, I felt like basically, I ain’t count,” he shared with the audience. “My probation [officer] told me, ‘You can’t vote, you got a felony.’ It just made me feel like I wasn’t wanted or I wasn’t supposed to be involved … You’ve gotta vote. That’s what changes the rules, change the laws. I voted, and I was able to be a part of where I live which is at home here in America. My voice matters.”
