“We’re proud to be a part of this initiative to encourage and enable voting and can’t wait to finally perform our album RTJ4,” the hip-hop duo said in a statement. “This will be fun.”
The event will be sponsored by Ben & Jerry’s and will not be interrupted by ads, according to a press release. Jabari Paul, the U.S. activism manager at Ben & Jerry’s, said in a statement: “Young people are the single largest block of voters, and if they turn out at the same rate as their parents, they have the power to hold elected officials accountable on issues like policing and public safety, climate change, education, jobs and the economy. That’s why we are proud that Run the Jewels is helping spread that word and we’re pleased to be working with Adult Swim to make this exciting night happen.”
