The leader of the Labour party shared footage of his time with the Boy Better Know MC on Snapchat with JME saying, "Hi, it's JME, Boy Better Know. I'm on Jeremy's Snapchat to make sure you register to vote." Another snap described the pair discussing “music, education, and art.”

On Twitter, JME said that he took the time with Corbyn to explain "why bare of us don't vote." He later shared what he had learned from his time with the leader of the opposition.


JME is one of a number of grime MCs who have been vocal in their support for Corbyn in the run up to the June 8 election. AJ Tracey, Akala, and Novelist have also shown support for him during the campaign. Prior to their meeting Corbyn thanked JME for encouraging fans to vote.
