Though the duo headlined the event alongside Muse, Flo Rida, and Lucacris, they were the only act to sing in support of same-sex marriage. Check out their performance of “Same Love” featuring Mary Lambert, a song that articulates the pair’s connection to the gay community and their support for marriage equality.
Some of the lyrics:
“When I was at church they taught me something else
If you preach hate at the service those words aren’t anointed
That holy water that you soak in has been poisoned
When everyone else is more comfortable remaining voiceless
Rather than fighting for humans that have had their rights stolen
I might not be the same, but that’s not important
No freedom till we’re equal, damn right I support it”
The only thing more amazing than a rapper publicly supporting same-sex marriage are the hundreds of fans singing along with him. What a sight!
Proceeds from the single were donated to Music4Marriage, an organization that helped push marriage equality through legislation in Washington this February.
