West Coast rapper Kendrick Lamar has had a change of heart months after revealing he does not take part in elections by announcing his participation come this Tuesday, November 6th.
“I think we tend to put [issues] in the hands of higher politics rather than do for ourselves, So what made me the most angry is, when something doesn’t go right in that world, you get people out here that want to blame Obama. And I think that’s corny. I think that’s one of our biggest failures as a community, as a generation; not wanting to go out and do for ourselves and to sit back and wait. And then when it doesn’t happen, we point the finger. I think we just really need to take matters into our own hands; uplift our community, put money back in our community, and show these kids how there’s something different.
