‘Lemme find out you ain’t registered to vote’: 5th Ward Weebie drops that b.e.a.t. for the polls

When that “Triggerman” beat drops, you already know it’s about to go down.

But 5th Ward Weebie took it to another level Thursday, dropping another remix of his hit “Lemme Find Out,” that’s getting the word out about voting on Tuesday, Nov. 6.

Complete with Game Ova Skip, Twerk NOLA and a poll curtain in front of City Hall, Weebie let’s you know up front what he’s here for.

“You already know, I’m reaching out letting ya’ll know, ya’ll gotta go vote,” he says in the intro. “It’s real serious right now.”

Artist and activist Brandan “B-mike” Odums posted the video on Facebook Thursday, saying he asked 5th Ward Weebie to help grow the conversation around voting and, specifically, State Constitutional Amendment 2, which addresses unanimous juries. Presently, Louisiana law requires only 10 of 12 jurors to convict someone charged with a felony.

“Peace to crazy last minute ideas and those courageous enough to make it happen,” Odums said in his post.

Check out the video below and make sure to get out Nov. 6 and vote!
