This is the text (if you need help).

European leaders rapped to win votes. They want young people to listen to their raps and vote for them. Many young people don't like to vote. Ten years ago, 87% of young people voted, but last time, just 65% voted. Younger politicians made a group called EU40. They joined the "Battle For Your Vote" freestyle hip-hop contest.

In the battle, politicians had the mic for a minute to get some support. One party told young people: "If you like money, vote for [us]". There were raps on many topics, including unemployment. Each rapper gave their answers to these problems. They used short, rhyming sentences. They did not make long speeches.

Back to the rap lesson.
