Pusha T has been, well, “pushing” his advocacy for democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in to overdrive over these past few weeks, and could easily be one of the more prominent hip hop artists stirring up the culture’s political knowledge and involvement.
The G.O.O.D. Music president is now encouraging more Californian voters to get behind the California Marijuana Legalization Initiative, better known as Prop 64. Push just released a PSA showing his support for the bill, which is said to create new taxes and revenues that could be used for drug research, treatment and enforcement. The proposed law would legalize the recreational use of marijuana for those adults that are 21 and older.
In the thirty second PSA clip, Pusha explains:
If California’s Prop 64 passes, no one will ever be incarcerated for marijuana again. Marijuana arrests are the engine that’s driving the war on drugs.
Although Pusha T mentions that he is not a registered California voter, he knows that a major passing of legislature happening in California could greatly encourage the rest of the country as well.
The rapper recently attended a Miami rally in support of vice-presidential candidate Tim Kaine, has also stopped by several late night talk shows to drive home his Clinton-Kaine initiative, as well as his attempt to get the hip hop community more involved in this brash political election.
