Royce Da 5’9″ came through to do his part, hitting up Detroit polling stations to lay down a performance of his classic “Boom.”

In the footage, which has since been circulating across social media, Royce can be seen spitting some bars beside a #JoyToThePolls truck, bringing “Boom” to life without missing a stride. All the while, he’s got the mask on for protection from COVID-19, showing his dedication to keeping a safe environment. If anything, the protective gear goes to show how solid his breath control really is, though it’s unlikely to stop the scores of anti-maskers from their hang-wringing.
It should be noted that Joe Biden has, as of this moment, officially turned Michigan blue with a key victory — though it’s likely that Donald Trump and his team will continue to fight tooth and nail against the verdict. One has to wonder if Royce and Eminem’s Biden endorsements ultimately went on to have an impact on the Michigan outcome, as Donald Trump previously held the state back in 2016. Either way, it bodes well to see artists stepping up to provide entertainment for those vying to make a difference. Much respect to Nickel for holding it down and bringing “Boom” to the masses.
