Jimmy McMillan, the “Rent Is Too Damn High” candidate, is trying to rap his way to Gracie Mansion.
The 66 year-old, who ran for New York governor in 2010 and president in 2012, collaborated with Animal New York to “make an anthem” for his 2013 mayoral bid.
“Jimmy McMillan, the political candidate whose slogan represents the one issue that all New Yorkers can agree on–that the rent is too damn high–is running for mayor. ANIMAL isn’t in the business of endorsing candidates, but we did want to help him get that message out,” ANIMAL said on its website.
The anthem is featured in a music video with McMillan rapping in front of some of New York City’s most famous sites, including the Unisphere in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park.
