Rappers Common and Offset took the stage Tuesday at Joe Biden’s Atlanta drive-in rally, bringing star power and street credibility to the event.
Common performed first and fired off some freestyle raps. Later, he introduced Georgia native Offset, who performed his song “Clout.”
“We got Offset here,” Common told the excited crowd. “He’s 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.”
Democratic presidential nominee Biden was introduced as “Hey Ya!” by Atlanta duo OutKast played in the background.
Biden called for unity among the country amid the pandemic and protests demanding racial equity.
“These are all historic, painful crises. The insidious virus. Economic anguish systemic discrimination. Any one of them could have rocked a nation,” Biden said in his speech. “Yet we’ve been hit by all three at once. But if we’re honest with ourselves, the pain striking at the heart of our country goes back not months, but years.”
Offset publicly endorsed Biden on Instagram by captioning a photo of himself, Biden and Common together backstage with the words, “Go vote @joebiden…”
Common also shared photos of the event on his Instagram page along with the caption, “We’re in #Atlanta today on our GOTV Tour encouraging folks to vote and spreading a message of love, hope and joy.”
