Grime4Corbyn has relaunched as Rize Up campaign aims to get more young people registered to vote


The campaign #Grime4Corbyn is being relaunched with a brand new list of artists involved who are looking to support Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn in the upcoming General Election.

Some artists are even taking part in a non-partisan campaign called Rize Up to encourage young people to register to vote, whichever way they’re leaning for December 12th’s GE. Musicians including Maverick Sabre, Lady Leshurr, Donae’o and Jammer from Boy Better Know have all got involved.

Some notable acts of the Grime scene have come out in support of Corbyn following speculation that the group from 2017’s General Election would not buoy Labour’s chances at capturing younger voters. Artists such as Wiley, Nadia Rose, and Lethal Bizzle supported a new grime event to show that support has been announced.

Influential artist MIA said: “I’m grateful that someone like Jeremy Corbyn is running”, she called him “the last stand that England has got”.

It comes as Labour today announce they will put the arts “at the heart of government” with a new £1 billion investment plan for the creative arts.
