On Election Day, the rap artist and his good friend, Drew Findling, present for a post-voting photo. Findling captions their picture, “Proud to share the experience of @offsetyrn’s first time voting in a presidential election.”
The Migos rap artist opened about his experience with citizen suppression in a PSA made in cooperation with When We All Vote. After being founded guilty of a felony at 17, his probation officer informed him he was no longer qualified to vote. After knowing this was not in fact the case, Offset stated he felt influenced to get included and vote in Georgia’s main election this past June.
“It still could be ten times better, but you gotta vote,” the now 28-year-old shared. “That’s what changes the rules, changes the laws. I really felt good voting, because I was told I couldn’t, or I was told I wouldn’t be able to clean up or get away from my past and look where I’m at now.”
