Here Are Rappers’ 2016 Presidential Endorsements

Since DUers of all persuasions are interesting in Rap music--I had no idea some of y'all were so familier with the genre. Here is a handy slide show on who is endorsing who. This is Internet old, before the first debate. Rapper Mike for instance was a even fan back then, (I think the news is his active support) Snoop Dogg endorsed Hillary back in May--But I digress. Here is a short list -----feel free to use google if you don't recognize some of the names.

Tonight (Oct. 13) is the first democratic debate. Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Martin O’Malley, Jim Webb and Lincoln Chafee will go at it while proving to the nation their legitimacy. Since the 2016 Presidential candidates for both parties put in their bids, hip-hop has been very vocal along the process. Here’s a gallery of who your favorite hip-hop stars are endorsing.

5. I know Kim K is with Clinton but last I heard from Kanye was praise of Dr Carson:

 

“As soon as I heard Carson speak, I tried for three weeks to get on the phone with him. I was like, ‘This is the most brilliant guy.'”

That was all fairly recent and that information is in the linked article.

It's off the hook--I got Janice Jacksons new album and I was surprised to hear Missy Elliot on it --and then Bam--she's back and powerful as ever.

Janet Jackson dammit.
