Rapper YelloPain Argues "My Vote Will Count" With Latest Remix Featuring Sevyn Streeter
Dayton rapper YelloPain takes us back to school with his breakdown of how the branches of government and legislation work in "My Vote Will Count" featuring Sevyn Streeter. The song stresses that people should not only pay attention to the presidential election, but also to Congress who create the bills that either are signed by the president and made into a law or are vetoed.
In the video, the rapper overhears a conversation at his barbershop. YelloPain's barber talks about feeling let down by an unspecified President who served two terms. The rapper interupts the conversation to explain that not everything is up to the president.
"So when the news station tried to tell us that Barack Obama couldn't put us on, we was all salty at Obama when it was the Congress members all along," he raps in the song.
The song is a remixed version of "My Vote Don't Count" released in January that taps in Sevyn Streeter. Listen to the new version above.
The upcoming election is set for Nov, 3. Check out GRAMMY.com/election2020 for more.
