Chance The Rapper Marched Thousands Of Millennials To The Polls In Chicago
...And he's not your fave because?
I find myself asking time and time again: how could anyone not like Chance The Rapper? The independent Coloring Book rapper is well on his way to not only making history in music, but in politics, too.
First, he teamed up with the NAACP to register voters, then he vocalized his support for Hillary Clinton while opening for the Get Out To Vote concert for headliners Auntie Yonce and Jay Z in Cleveland, Ohio. He even starred in a PSA.
Monday, he took it a step further when his nonprofit organization SocialWorks gave a free concert to his hometown of Chicago in Grant Park’s Petrillo Music Shell. Then, he led a crowd of thousands from the show to the voting polls. The event was fittingly hashtagged #ParadeToThePolls.
And I do mean thousands!
Many of the attendees were first-time voters and/or millennials, and since this was on Monday, these were early voters. According to Vibe, Cook County received nearly 400,000 ballots cast prior to election day. See more of the beautiful chaos in the streets below.
And of course, it's only right...
