Rapper Bow Wow on American Morning CNN
Bow Wow talks with American Morning’s Kiran Chetry about his newest adventure the “Walk Across America” in which he is trying to bring awareness and get the young people out to vote. The goal is to attract those between the ages of 18 and 25.

“I’m a first time voter myself, so it feels good to share this with my peers,” Bow Wow who’s now 21 years-old stated.

The rapper talks about when he was 18 and did not understand the true aspects of voting at that time. He also talks about how he can relate with those in his age range and how his thoughts about voting changed after watching the news and getting involved.
