ICYMI: Chance The Rapper Leads Chicago Residents In A ‘Parade To The Polls’

He’s doing his part to make sure people cast their votes.

Chance the Rapper hosted a “parade to the polls” in Chicago on Monday to help get out the vote.

The Chi-town native led the march, which began at 6 p.m. EST and ended at an early voting “super site” where voters took advantage of more than 100 touch-screen voting booths. The march took place immediately following a free block party that was put together by the rapper’s non-profit organization and featured performances by artists Twin Peaks, his brother Taylor Bennett, rapper Malcolm London and a few special guests.

This isn’t the first time the “Coloring Book” rapper has gotten involved with politics. Earlier this year, he teamed up with the NAACP for its #StayWokeAndVote campaign. He also performed at a Hillary Clinton rally in Cleveland on Friday ― alongside superstars Beyoncé, Jay Z, Big Sean and J. Cole ― in hopes of engaging black and hispanic millennial voters.
