Shout out to everyone who patiently waited in long lines to cast a vote this year. For a handful of lucky folks near Atlanta, Offset made the experience even more worth their while by pulling up with fresh cheesesteaks.

After hitting a voting booth for the first time in his life, Offset surprised his fellow Georgia residents at three polling locations across Gwinnett and Fulton County with free munchies.

The 28-year-old rapper linked with two popular local food trucks called The Slutty Vegan and Big Dave's, both known for their tasty cheesesteaks, and helped prepare and distribute hot food on Election Day.

The Lincoln Project and AXSD Media were involved in the effort as well. One behind the scenes clip shows Offset whipping his wrist after topping a sandwich with extra sauce. A couple of cooks alongside him couldn't help but imitate the dance.

Later, Offset took a moment to encourage a crowd to vote, per TMZ. "I want to thank y’all for coming out," he said. "This was a quick lil pop-up, it’s all about voting. I voted for the first time today. If you ain’t vote, you should get out there and vote by 7 o'clock." Yessir!

Hundreds of miles away on 125th St. in New York's Harlem community, Busta Rhymes appeared on a mini stage and performed a few cuts from his latest album, 'Extinction Level Event 2: The Wrath of God,' while hyping onlookers to play their part in the presidential bid. 

He reflected on the moment via Instagram: "Today on this Election Day I stand with my people and for my people!!!" Busta also graced 'The Tonight Show' with Anderson .Paak to run their collab "YUUUU."
