The Hip-Hop Vote

Hey yall, back from down south. Lots to tell but too much to catch up on right now. So here’s a kind of a summary of what I was talking about out there in an article I did on the hip-hop vote. Bonus beats: gettin’ hyphy with the Federation.

More sites on the hip-hop vote:

+ Arianna on “Will Bush Spark A Seismic Youthquake?”

+ The ever-great Pop and Politics and Davey D.

+ The most comprehensive list of pop musician’s GOTV efforts is at Air Traffic Control.

+ The most comprehensive list of hip-hopcentric voter’s guides is at The League of Pissed-Off/Independent/Hip-Hop Voters.

If you’re feeling these sites, support em with your loot. Change ain’t free, yall.

Bonus site: A pro anti-Bush site for conservative anti-conservative bloggers.


+ Ta-Nehisi Coates is now in Jacksonville, Florida to cover what used to be euphemistically called “voting irregularities in communities of color” and is now called “basic Republican playbook shit”. Check his blog here.

+ DJ Shadow has released an election-season limited-edition something. Can’t divulge any more details. Just go here now.


For everyone doing GOTV work, here’s to November 3rd. You’re almost there!

And for the second presidential election in a row, I’ll be in Florida the day after. This time, it’s Gainesville, hosted by the Asian Student Union at the University of Florida for their Kaleidoscope month. I’ll be bleary-eyed but energized and primed, so fall through. Here’s the details:
