We had a chance to hit up the 2008 Hip Hop Summit in Philly Sunday where T.I., Blood Diamond Russ, Ciara, Lil Mama, Flo Rida, Styles P, and others spoke on the importance of voting:
BDR: “Voting is an act of empowering oneself and the masses are witnessing the importance of the youth vote. You are going to make the critical difference!”
T.I.: “I personally know the value of having the right to vote and it being taken away from you. This is the most important election of our lifetime. Focus on what you can do to help make the change. Everyone here has a voice– Do your part!”
Lil Mama: “I came out of the hood and I know that if we want to improve these communities, all of us must go out and vote in record numbers.”
Ciara gets a pass for putting the rack on display for the kids since it was for a good cause. SMH. We must say that T.I. and Lil Mama commanded the presence on stage for the youth that were in attendance, they had the crowd going wild with their statements. Kudos to them.
The Pennsylvania primaries are today, get out there and vote. Philly stand up!
