Kanye West isn’t the only rap star who will flirt with a political career, as rapper Akinyele plans to run for the position of Mayor of Miami Beach.
The rapper is serious about his bid to run just in time for the upcoming August 30 primary elections for Mayor, which occurs every two years.
“There’s no one here to represent us,” Akinyele said. “We are trying to integrate history right now. [I’m not saying the Mayor isn’t doing a great job now, but this Mayor might not be the Mayor forever,” Akinyele said.
