MC Yogi’s "Vote for Hope" is the new anthem for the historic 2008 election season.
"Vote For Hope" was written to encourage and mobilize the hip hop generationâ€”and everyoneâ€”to let their voices be heard. “Barack Obama is a catalyst for our generation,” says MC Yogi. "His campaign inspires young people to engage their creativity, and music is a fast and effective way to reach, inspire and galvanize the youth movement."
This free download adds MC Yogi’s positive, politically conscious rhymes to samples of Barack Obama’s inspiring speech from the 2004 Democratic National Convention.
