T.I., Hip-Hop Caucus Encourage Voting

Rapper T.I. is joining forces with the Hip-Hop Caucus to launch a new voter registration campaign.

The 2008 Voter Registration and Education initiative and Get Out the Vote campaign will officially kick off at 10:30 a.m. July 28, with a celebrity green carpet at the 9:30 Club in Washington DC.

A press conference will follow at 11:45 a.m. after doors open to the public at 11:30 a.m. T.I. will be among the celebrities appearing at the free event, to discuss the importance of civic engagement in young people.

The Get Out the Vote campaign slogan as well as exclusive t-shirts produced by T.I.’s forthcoming AKOO clothing line will be unveiled at the event, which will feature guest DJ Green Lantern.

T.I’s involvement in the Get Out the Vote campaign isn’t the first time the Atlanta rapper has made an effort to encourage fans to register and vote during the upcoming presidential election.

T.I. is part of an all-star line up of entertainers who took part in a new public service announcement created by the Hip Hop Summit Action Network and CPX Interactive.
