Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign announced Wednesday that it is giving away a chance to meet the rapper Pusha T, known for his lyrics about selling cocaine.

The give-away asks individuals to register to vote — an alternate link allows them to enter without doing so — in order to meet Pusha T backstage.

This is isn’t the first interaction between Pusha T and the Clinton campaign. In August, Pusha T said over FaceTime that Clinton praised his efforts to increase voter registration. Pusha T stands for “Push a Ton” and most of songs are about selling cocaine.

For example, he has rapped, “Got more white in the hood than the KKK/ The grand wizard of that almighty blizzard.”

“Reagan Era I ran contraband,” is another line of Pusha T’s.

His connection to cocaine isn’t only in rap. His former manager was sentenced to 32 years in prison for a nearly $10 million cocaine operation. Pusha T frequently raps about his lack of a need to rely on rap money, implying he has money from other endeavors.

Below are some other rap lyrics from the man Clinton is promoting.

“Change came from cocaine I’ve measured/White was the treasure, comfort was the steel/I pedal to the corner like a child on a big wheel.”

“I listen to the beat in the rhymer’s room/See, I was 16, eyes full of hope/Bagging up grams at the Hyatt, doe/ The news called it crack, I called it Diet Coke.”

“The black Martha Stewart–let me show you how to do it! / Break down pies to pieces, make cocaine quiches.”
