Jeremy Corbyn met up with grime artist JME to discuss why there’s such low turnout among young people when it comes to voting in elections.

The pair sat down together to also chat about “music, education and art”, according to Corbyn’s Snapchat.

JME posted a list of recommendations to his almost 700,000 Twitter followers, telling them to “register to vote, know who you are voting for, know why you are voting for them, vote”.

People on social media were loving the unconventional duo.

Some jumped on the opportunity to give some of JME’s lyrics a political makeover.

And others are now hoping that Corbyn will make an appearance at the upcoming Boy Better Know takeover event at the O2.

JME joins a growing list of grime artists who are backing Corbyn, including Stormzy, Novelist and Akala.
