T.I.

Atlanta rapper T.I. will be hitting Philadelphia this weekend to support Russell Simmons' ‘Turn Up The Vote’ campaign.

The campaign, which Simmons launched earlier this year, educates young adults about the issues in the upcoming Presidential election and encourages them to vote.

The Philadelphia summit will take place at Temple University on Sunday (April 20).
 
“I am pleased to have the opportunity to travel to Philadelphia to participate in the Hip-Hop Summit,” T.I. said via a statement.  “We are going to encourage young people to go out to vote.  I personally know the value of having the right to vote and it taken away from you, but I will add my voice to help inspire others to take seriously this right and responsibility.”

Other artists expected to appear at the event include Ciara, Jim Jones, Flo-Rida, Webbie, Lil Boosie, Rosci and Terrence J (hosts of BET’s 106 & Park), Chrisette Michelle, Rich Boy, Styles P, Lyfe Jennings, Lil X, Green Lantern and Gorilla Zoe, among others.

Doors open at 12:30 Pm and free tickets for the event are available for download at www.hsan.org.
