Hillary Clinton scores the coveted rapper vote

The 2016 presidential elections are still many months away, but Hillary Clinton appears to have locked in the vote of one demographic: rappers.

In a recent interview with MTV News, Waka Flocka Flame endorsed Clinton's presidential bid, suggesting he would help with her campaign if she endorsed his music. (Flame had previously attempted to launch his own presidential bid, but he is only 28 years old.)

Rappers Ja Rule and Snoop Dogg have also endorsed Clinton in various interviews. "I'll say that I would love to see a woman in office, because I feel like we're at that stage in life to where we need a perspective other than the male's train of thought," Snoop Dogg said in a Bravo TV interview.

And on Thursday, rapper 50 Cent added his name to the list of Clinton endorsers in an interview with The Daily Beast. CNN notes that rapper A$AP Rocky also recently said Clinton is one of "the best."
