Nas is urging young people to register to vote in a new video for OurTime.org.

"The future of this country is in the hands of young people," Nas says in the video. "We have the power. We can go to the polls in droves ... and vote to get the person that we want. We can do that."

The rapper joins a group of celebrities getting behind OurTime.org's voter registration campaign. Stars like Renee Zellweger, Usher, Steve Carell, and the cast of "Workaholics" have also recorded videos with the hopes of getting more voters to the ballot box this November.
