Offset did his patriotic duty, plus, plus on Tuesday (Nov. 3). After casting his vote in the presidential election, the Migos rapper drove around to a number of polling places in Georgia to deliver food to voters waiting in line to cast their ballots in the contentious election. The collaboration with AXSD Media and the Lincoln Project found Offset traveling to three spots in Fulton and Gwinnett counties to distribute food from Slutty Vegan and Big Dave’s Cheesesteak.
“Ya’ll get out here and vote, we’ll get into it,” Offset told on crowd in a series of clips he posted from his election day outing. Both Offset and wife Cardi B were very vocal about the importance of voting in the lead-up to Tuesday’s showdown between President Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden; at press time the results of the race were still too close to call with thousands of mail-in and absentee votes yet to be counted.
At one point, the Lincoln Project claimed that Offset was threatened by unnamed officials during one of the stops on his food delivery spree, with the anti-Trump org tweeting, “We’ve been working in Georgia with @OffsetYRN, to feed Gwinnett’s voters in those unnecessarily long lines, but instead of a welcome, he was threatened by @gwinnettgov. This is what voter intimidation and discrimination looks like.”
Offset played a drive-in Biden rally with Common last Tuesday. “We got Offset here,” Common said at the event. “He been speaking up about voting for as long as I’ve known the man. I’ve got to say, it’s just been touching my heart to hear his story, and hear what he’s done.”
