Mid-term elections are under a month away and Lil John has teamed up with Rock The Vote to let the world know that it is time to turn up and turn out to vote.
The ATL native has lended his song “Turn Down For What” to the cause and reworked it into “Turn Out For What” to get people thinking about heading to the ballot box on November 4th. In the new public service announcement Lil John teams up with Whoopi Goldberg, EJ Johnson, Lena Dunham, Fred Armisen and Natasha Lyonne to let everybody know what issues they are turning out for. Each celebrity gives their reasons on why they plan to “turn out” including prison reform, immigration, marriage equality, and reproductive rights, but Lil Jon “blows” the others out of the water with the reason he is casting his ballot — the legalization of marijuana. While stating his reason for showing up to the ballot box, Jon lights up a giant prop spliff and starts smoking it.
This may not be the textbook way of getting people in interest in taking their time to vote but it might just work.
