“Politics & Pizza” with Newark’s Mayor Cory Booker and Raekwon – Part 1

Raekwon addresses Newark, New Jersey, Mayor Corey Booker with supreme frankness: “What’s up with the youth programs? Call up some of these rappers. We’re not against y’all.”

The virtual interaction between the two luminaries took place at the first-ever “Politics & Pizza,” a frank discussion with the leader of a tough-as-nails city on the rise. In this first segment, Mayor Booker talks with AllHipHop’s Chuck “Jigsaw” Creekmur, Seandra Sims, Gina Torres, and Grouchy Greg Watkins, along with Wu-Tang Clan’s Raekwon, about mentoring youth and how Hip-Hop artists need to step up.
