Jineea Butler @jbfornydistrict13 , a #Republican congressional candidate for New York’s 13th District, is in the process of trying to create a new hip-hop based political party, and she’s asked #LLCoolJ and
#BustaRhymes to be party leaders.
Butler is also the founder of the #HipHop Union and said both legendary rappers would be able to get younger people excited about the political process. At this time, however, neither LL or Busta have responded. “We’re looking for somebody that can energize the vote, so we can clear the 50,000 votes and someone who resonates with #millennial's and young folks,” she explained. The line will be called the New American Party and Butler said she wanted to start it because she feels Republicans have given up on building a relationship with the #Blackcommunity. She also said #Democrats are aware of this and as a result, have taken the #Blackvote for granted.
To officially start the line, the congressional candidate will need 15,000 signatures across New York State by Aug. 21, and she believes it can be pulled off, despite the time constraints. READ MORE AT STATEVSUSMAG.COM
