Following Tuesday’s (December 12) special election vote in Alabama, a majority of those in the Hip Hop community celebrated after Democrat Doug Jones’ win over and Republican (and accused child molester) Roy Moore for a U.S. Senate seat.
The 49.9% vs. 48.4% win in the typically deep red state specifically drew plenty of response from rappers in the Southeast.
Other reactions came from El-P, 2 Chainz, Big Boi and T.I. and more.
phew! close call on the ol "pedophile for senate" thing, eh? yeah. reeeeeallly close.

Jones’ win also set off a series of “Doug Jones WHO?” jokes across Twitter timelines.
