‘Pull Over’ performer Trina wants you to pull up the polls to vote!

And in the event you needed gentle persuasion, she’s teamed with rising rapper Saucy Santana and the dating app BLK to get the message across.

Just in time for National Voter Education Week, the Hip-Hop duo tag team on the sexually suggestive ‘No Voting, No Vucking’ – which proclaims “if you wanna hit this booty, gotta do your civic duty” – comes as a musical bid to get young people active in midterm elections.

“I’m honored to use my platform to empower young people because not voting is definitely a red flag in a relationship. Period!” said Santana in a [press statement. “Now, more than ever, we have to use our voices to stand up for what we believe in. Voting is sexy. Being informed is sexy.”

Social media remains in an uproar after Kanye West‘s Yeezy Paris Fashion Week Show on Monday (October 3) saw the controversial rapper unveil a new line of custom tee shirts with the phrase “White Lives Matter” printed on them.

Rocked by fellow celebrities Candace Owens, Selah Marley (daughter of Lauryn Hill and Bob Marley‘s son Rohan), and others, the shirts garnered quite the backlash despite West’s attempt to classify them as “revolutionary art.”

Hours after the GRAMMY winner took to the net to defend the Yeezy tees as a response to the “scam” that was the Black Lives Matter movement (as we reported here), Selah has done the same.

Look inside to see how she’s hitting back at critics.

In the wake of the shooting death of his friend and ‘Too Many Years’ collaborator PNB Rock, rapper Kodak Black has been atop many related headlines – from posting a “chicken and waffles” tribute many found insensitive to slamming the late emcee’s girlfriend, Stephanie Sibounheuang, for what he believed was her role in the 30-year-old’s untimely passing.

Joining a chorus of many at the time who thought her geo-tagged Instagram post is what alerted Rock’s would-be killers to locate him, Black took to social media to suggest the young woman “kill herself” as a result.

After police reports later revealed the men suspected of the crime were already at the Roscoe’s House of Chicken ‘N Waffles restaurant when PNB (born Rakim Hasheem Allen) arrived, Kodak took accountability for his harsh words and issued an apology.
