T.I., Young Jeezy & LL Cool J Honored For Their Efforts To Get Out The Vote

In celebration of the Barack Obama’s Presidential inauguration, Russell Simmons and Dr. Benjamin Chavis’ Hip-Hop Summit Action Network (HSAN) has announced plans for a star-studded event in the nation’s capitol, honoring the hip-hop community for its efforts in getting out the vote.

Dubbed the “Hip-Hop Inauguration Ball,” the event will include a fundraiser to generate donations for HSAN’s non-profit work in education advocacy, as well as an award presentation honoring T.I., LL Cool J, Young Jeezy and the Hip-Hop Caucus’ “Respect My Vote” campaign, for their contribution to the largest youth voter turnout in American history.

“We are celebrating the Inauguration of Barack Obama as President of the United States, and the magnificent turn out of young voters throughout the nation,” Simmons, who is the Chairman and Co-founder of HSAN, said in a statement. “Hip-Hop is all about transformation and it is a thrill to help make and witness this history.”

The Hip-Hop Inaugural, which will take place at the prestigious Harman Center for the Arts on January 19, 2009, will also include a celebrity studded red carpet and a VIP party.
