JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

On the final day of his campaign, Jackson mayoral candidate Chokwe Lumumba received an endorsement from Grammy-winning rapper Ludacris.

In a 24-second video posted on Lumumba's election Facebook page Tuesday afternoon, Ludacris addressed the people of Jackson and specifically the youth of Jackson.

"We've gotta move forward in Jackson, Mississippi," Ludacris said. "So, the only way to do that is if you vote for my man. Let's get progressive, let's evolve, let's keep it going. Chokwe Lumumba for mayor -- peace."

According to Lumumba's son, Ludacris' manager's father and Chokwe have been friends for years. Lumumba's son also added that they are pleased with voter turnout, but it's been quiet in northeast Jackson.

Lumumba, a Jackson city councilman, won the democratic primary election runoff and is facing three independent candidates in the mayoral race.
