Gucci Mane stopped by Florida Memorial University Monday (Nov. 7), to perform a short set as well as drop some gems about the importance of young people exercising their rights to vote in today’s election.
“You have an opportunity to make a big impact tomorrow, and not just any young people – young people in this room, young people of color, young people that come from neighborhoods surrounding this college,” Gucci said on stage before a screaming crowd. “We need to make a vote to stop all the police brutality. We need to make a vote to stop this mass incarceration.”
The Woptober rapper also explained how being a convicted felon has stripped him of his right. “I wish that I had my right to vote,” he added. “I feel like after you serve your time, don’t punish me for the rest of my life for something I already served my time for. So ya’ll vote for me.”
