Talib Kweli, Wale and Vic Mensa Team Up For Global Citizen’s “Show Up and Vote” Campaign

(AllHipHop News) Wale, Vic Mensa, Ani DiFranco and Talib Kweli have teamed up to perform as part of the Global Citizen’s Show Up and Vote campaign.

The musicians are working to encourage young Americans to vote in next month’s presidential election.

Justine Skye and Madame Ghandi will also take part in the campaign and performances will take place in Las Vegas, Nevada, Columbus, Ohio, and Orlando, Florida later this month and in November.

“I’ve been traveling the country on my Vote Dammit tour and it’s been inspiring to see so many people energized about the idea of participating in the electoral process and breathing new life into our democracy,” a statement from DiFranco reads. “I hope that this event will help further galvanize young voters in the crucial state of Florida to participate in this and every election.”

Last month, Rihanna, Kendrick Lamar, Selena Gomez, Major Lazer and Metallica performed at the Annual Global Citizen Festival on the Great Lawn in Central Park.
