Michelle Obama's Voting Playlist is the Message We All Need to Hear Right Now

By Alec Banks

With the election less than two weeks away, every American should be committed to exercising their right to vote. Choosing a candidate isn't like picking a spouse. It's more like selecting the bus that gets you closest to where you want to go. If you believe in climate change, Black Lives Matter, and the science pertaining to COVID-19, the choice should be abundantly clear.

Rock The Bells partnered with former First Lady, Michelle Obama, to highlight classic Hip-Hop songs she believes best embodies the importance of voting. Featuring artists like Public Enemy, Black Sheep, The Roots, Black Star, Whodini, Queen Latifah, Doug E. Fresh, Slick Rick, Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five, Kurtis Blow, Run-DMC, and Big Daddy Kane, be sure to participate in the Democratic process. 

If you don't vote, you can't complain.
