Jay Electronica is one of my favorite artists. His lyrical styling is effervescent, yeah, I said it, effervescent. I’m not surprised to see him on a list which also includes Atlanta’s Mayor, Kasim Reed. They are both using the realities of society to move the crowd, whether it be at a concert or to the voting polls.
Speaking of moves, Janelle Monae is the hautest woman in a tuxedo. There’s something about seeing her perform that makes ME feel good. Right, what is that?

John Legend is out here living up to his last name, ain’t he? In addition to being extremely talented vocally and on the piano, he gives time and money to worthwhile causes, introducing philanthropic compassion to a new generation of music lovers.
