Hip hop artists have been using their voices more than ever this year to encourage their fans to vote.
Most of the industry has made it pretty clear that they are voting for Joe Biden, as it’ll bring change and equality back. Then, there are those few rappers who are still leaning toward Donald Trump’s side and have been vocal about it.
As a whole, America has been patiently waiting for the results of who will take on the next four years. While the votes are currently being counted, the music industry has taken to Twitter to vent on their thoughts.
For Common, whose been actively involved in the elections by endorsing Biden, has been consistent with sending positivity and hope for the future. In a series of tweets, he provided helpful information with hotlines for voters, an uplifting video, and faithful messages. He even made it clear how important it is for them to “COUNT. EVERY. VOTE.”
#CountEveryVote: Thank you to the amazing folks tirelessly counting all the votes right now. We see you and we appreciate you.

There were several more artists in the music industry, who took to Twitter to express their thoughts, as well as on Instagram. The official count or news on the winner of this presidential election has yet to be announced, but America is waiting on the big news.
Let me get this straight, I get the president of the United States to agree to put over half a trillion dollars of capital in the Black Community (without an endorsement) and Niggas are mad at me?😂😂😂…have a nice life.

This election has helped the younger generation get involved in politics at a young age. Which is good for everybody.

No matter what happens, we can all make a decision to take better care of each other.

Y’all it’s almost over. We can ignore this idiot and change the nuclear codes in the not too distant future. We’ve still got big problems (the fucking senate!) but we’re very close to crossing this gargantuan one off the list. Count the votes.
