2 Chainz has linked up with an organization called Respect My Vote! to make sure ex-felons know they may be able to vote. The rapper, who says he became a felon at 15, learned in 2008 that he was again eligible to vote.
"Being a felon, you become disenfranchised," says the rapper. "You don't have a say so in your community...People who made mistakes want to correct their wrongs. You should be able to do that."
In fact, while rules vary from state to state, felons who are not incarcerated, on probation or on parole can often participate in the electoral process.
A detailed list of rules by state is available at RespectMyVote
And Speaking of 2 Chainz...
Wendy loved 2 Chainz's stage presence so much that she asked him to perform twice. Check 2 Chainz out performing “Birthday Song” and “I’m Different."
