Hip Hop Caucus is handing out tix to see John Legend and India Arie at Merriweather outside of DC on July 17th to the first 20 people who sign up to volunteer with the Hip Hop Caucus' Opportunity Corps, following an email blast that went out to their email list today.

The email noted that the Hip Hop Caucus is partnering with John Legend ... "because of his commitment to going green, we have partnered with IMP Productions and his green summer tour in support of his latest album 'Evolver.'"
