R&B crooner Marcus Canty will be a first time voter in the upcoming election, and he says he thinks this will be his first step to getting into politics.
“It’s easy for people my age, for people to tell us about politics, but it’s hard because a lot of times it’s not fun for us,” he told S2S.
The 21 year-old said now that he’s older, he’s getting a chance to really voice his opinion, and he sees things differently than he did when he watched the first election.
“As you get older, your eyes open up to so many more things. I see things in a different light, so now I get a chance to exercise my vote,” he said.
Marcus seems to be taking his right to vote as seriously as he takes his music. His debut EP titled “This…is Marcus Canty” dropped earlier this week.
The “In and Out” singer stands alongside other celebs like Jay-Z, Beyonce, 2 Chainz and Will and Jada Smith, who are all promoting their right to vote. He will take to the polls next week for what is sure to be the first of many times to come.
He ended the interview by saying, “Respect my vote, baby.”
