To continue the campaign of getting our urban youth to show up at the polls during the November 2nd midterm elections, The League of Young Voters Education Fund (LYVEF) has teamed up with DJ Willie Shakes (host) for an allstar mixtape.
Comprising of the best political/civc engagement based hip-hop songs, The League of Young Voters Education Fund Presents: Numbers Don’t Lie: The November 2nd Edition features musical heavyweights including Lyfe Jennings, J.Cole, Yelawolf, Paul Wall, Glasses Malone, Jay Electronica, MURS, Raekwon, Lupe Fiasco, Lauryn Hill, Janelle Monae and more.
The goal? To activate not only urban youth, but our young adults as a whole to stand up and fight for the issues they want to see changed in their neighborhoods and states by using the power of voting.
We would love to feature this mixtape on the site. Below is the tracklisting, as well as a DL link to the mixtape and artwork. Let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!

About The League of Young Voters Education Fund:
The League of Young Voters Education Fund makes civic engagement relevant by meeting young people where they are, working on the issues that affect their lives, and providing them with tools, training, and support to become viable players in the civic process. Our target constituencies are young people, people of color and non-college youth, so a large part of this engagement is and always has been hip-hop influenced. LYVEF was founded on a movement: hip hop, a collection of artists and activists using their creative talents to empower their people. This empowerment resonates deeply with our message and is part of the backbone of our outreach. Over the years, LYVEF has seen a significant divide between the urban blogging/new media communities and the youth political movement.
