Rapper and ex-felon 2 Chainz has teamed up with the Respect My Vote! campaign to help educate disenfranchised felons on how to get back their right to vote.
The “No Lie” rapper talks in a video about becoming a felon at the age of 15 and thinking it was too late to vote.
2 Chainz regained his right to vote after meeting a woman registering people to vote in a mall during the 2008 presidential election.
He admits in the video that “after talking to her and just doing my research, I realized that you can vote again once you’re a felon.”
While sharing that he is “confident in the leader that we have,” 2 Chainz notes that is just his personal opinion, and that everyone’s opinion matters.
