This weekend, the Hip Hop Caucus, the Hip Hop Summit Action Network, Grand Hustle, Atlantic Records, AllHipHop.com, and BET are joining forces and launching the Respect My Vote! Bus Tour from the Hip Hop Awards in Atlanta.
This ‘Get Out the Vote’ Bus Tour will encourage newly registered voters to vote, and will make sure that every vote that is cast is respected!
Celebrities such as T.I, Jay Z, Keyshia Cole, T-Pain, Russell Simmons and many others will be participating in the Bus Tour, making select appearances. More artists will be announced along the way. Text RESPECT to 69866 for updates from the bus!
As T.I says, “Now that the deadlines for registration have passed my goal is to encourage the masses to exercise their right and vote. If you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem.”
If you want to volunteer at one of the stops along the way:

Remember, every Hip Hop Generation vote will make the difference on November 4th.
