Lupe's Favorite Rapper in Hampton, VA




Today I got to see Nas speak at HU's Voter Registration Drive for Barack Obama...

"Hip Hop Icon Nas is a conscious MC who in past has “never really gotten into politics”. He has been critized in the past for making bold and sometimes misinformed statements to the media. Most recently he caused a major stir within the Black Community when he attempted to name his latest Untitled album, Nigger. Nas is truly an outspoken individual who continues to break boundaries, slowly becoming the leader that our younger generation can look up too. Today, I got to witness something that Nasir Jones claimed he had never done before…

Following the day of Barack Obama’s visit to the city of Newport News, Virginia…The students of Hampton University got a real treat by having hip hop star Nas come speak at their Voter Registration Drive for the Obama Campaign. With notes jotted down in his Blackberry, Nas spoke to the students about this year’s historical election, the importance of registering to vote, and why he is supporting Barack Obama."
