(Houston, TX): The first of a series of Hip Hop the Vote music events will take place this Tuesday, September 25, 2012, 4-8 pm, at Reggae Bodega/Irie Juices at 4814 Alameda Road. Well-known Houston hip hop artists, Chingo Bling, Doughbeezy, The Niceguys, and Dat Boi T will perfom and promote non-partisan voting. At this family-friendly event, the artists will promote voting to younger, multicultural Houstonians who have low voter registration and turnout.
