In what is being characterized as “the dopest way” to get people to vote, Chicago hip-hop artist Chance the Rapper led a parade of hundreds of alleged voters to an early voting site.
Chance, a Hillary Clinton supporter, performed at a free concert Monday night before playing the role of the Pied Piper and leading the march, which was dubbed the “Parade to the Polls,” according to CNN.

Chance appeared to be well protected while marching to the polls, which is a good thing considering he is in Chicago.
It’s just a shame Chicagoans can’t muster this level of enthusiasm to speak out on the 660-plus shooting deaths this year — the number of people shot in the Windy City this year is 3,975, a whopping increase of more than a thousand over what it was this time last year, according to the Chicago Tribune.
But the recording artist’s involvement is dope!
Here’s a few more video clips of the march from social media:

The Washington Post happily trumpeted the rapper leading a “nonpartisan parade,” but it appears that not all got the memo:
