"We Votin', and Throwin' It Up"

Taz Arnold (aka TI$A), a member of the hip-hop trio SA-RA, made his debut as a solo artist yesterday with the release of "Vote Obama". The latest musician to use his celebrity to mobilize voters to the polls (after the smashing success of will.i.am's "YES WE CAN" and "We Are the Ones" videos), TI$A rounded up a bunch of his hip-hop colleagues -- including heavyweights Kanye West, Jay-Z, Chris Brown, and Apple of the Black Eyed Peas, among others -- to appear in this lyrical endorsement.

With a nice sample from Ice Cube's classic "Today Was a Good Day," and a very repetitive refrain ("We hood, we votin', and throwin' it up"), this track is likely to get stuck in your head -- which may well be the point.
