Come November 6, Pusha T knows who he’s voting for: President Obama. Much like his interview with us, Pusha talked politics with The Smoking Section and threw his support behind re-electing the incumbent for another four years. “I feel like the election’s gonna be great,” he said. “I feel like Obama is definitely the man and the man we should be putting in office again.”
One person that he’s not a fan of is Mitt Romney. “I feel like the fact that Romney is even being considered with all of his evasiveness and his tax past and his background and his history and family stuff, I think it says a lot. Like why are we even considering this man? I think it’s a testament to how classy Obama has been. He could really dig into all of Romney’s policies but he hasn’t. I think Obama has been very tasteful, when others would not have been at all.”
Pusha is not the first rapper to publicly announce support for the president, but not everyone shares his voting enthusiasm. Kendrick Lamar made headlines for announcing that he doesn’t vote back in August, and last month actress Stacey Dash announced that she will be voting for Romney.
No matter which side of the political spectrum that you fall on, make sure to let your voice be heard and vote.
