T.I. Partners With Hip-Hop Caucus For Voter Registration Drive

T.I. and the Hip-Hop Caucus have partnered to form a voter registration initiative targeted at young adults, aged 18 to 29.

The “Get Out The Vote” pact was announced today and next week the campaign will kick off with Tip and the organization holding a press conference in Washington D.C.

The campaign slogan and t-shirts will be revealed at the event, to be held the morning of July 28 at the 9:30 Club.

T.I. will be the major spokesman, but will be joined by other celebrities and key figures. PSAs, online marketing, and photos by famed hip-hop lensman Jonathan Mannion will be used.

During the last presidential election, Diddy launched the “Vote or Die” campaign, which registered a number of first time voters. The Russell Simmons founded Hip-Hop Action Summit Network has also been responsible for securing a number of young people to vote. Simmons official resigned form his board position of HHSAN (a non-partisan group) after officially endorsing Illinois Senator Barack Obama during the Democratic primary.—LaTisha Robbins
