New Orleans Rapper Dee-1 Helps Promote “Barack Talk” and Voting for 2012

(AllHipHop News) In the three-plus years since the 2008 Election, the top issues affecting many Americans – unemployment, insufficient healthcare, poverty, and lack of adequate educational resources – have been heavily thrust into the spotlight. And, among the mostly urban Hip-Hop community, the problems that plague us are front and center, according to rapper Dee-1, the so-called “one-man army.”

In this pivotal year for collectively raising voices and finding solutions among “The 99%”, there are some who report that they don’t plan to vote. To that end, on January 24, AllHipHop.com will partner with The League Of Young Voters Education Fund and Rock The Vote for the second annual #BarackTalk, a State of the Union roundtable discussion and watch party.

Panelists include rappers Dee-1 and Rhymefest; Goldie Taylor, leading news correspondent at TheGrio.com (MSNBC); Chuck Creekmur, influential urban entertainment journalist and co-founder of AllHipHop.com; Andreas Hale of TheWellVersed.com; Shaheem Reid of Editor-At-Large of XXL; and Michael Skolnick, Political Director of GlobalGrind.com.

Join the movement on January 24, and watch the video clip below, as Dee-1 and Goldie Taylor talk the importance of voting and the 2012 Election with everyday, concerned young citizens:

        Wrong….That NDAA bill completely destroys the U.S. Constitution. That alone is enough reason to say NOPE. Dior is right….Don’t be fooled by this Republican vs Democrat nonsense…An 86 to 13 vote in the Senate showed me that… That bill is far worse than SOPA or PIPA could ever be.

    Politics always brings out the best and worst in people.  But let’s not overlook the fact that it does make us DISCUSS what’s wrong (and right) with the world.   I don’t think people would talk to each other as much as they have if it weren’t for this election and the ’08 election.  And thanks to the internet we can ALL share our opinions with the world lol.  

    I love that this open forum is being revisited as it was in the last election and I applaud DEE-1 for being a catalyst …. #MissionVision
